Thanks, David. Helpful data point.
I am using glut32 rather than freeglut (and no need for patching the darcs
GLUT). I wonder if glut32-vs-freeglut could account for crash-vs-nocrash on
6.10 and 6.11 but not 6.9. I'd love to hear from someone on Windows and
Please do post a wiki page on freeglut + ghc on windows and let us know
Could you integrate your glutWin32 patch into the darcs GLUT?
