[Haskell-cafe] Timer with Haskell GUI application

Hi all,

I'm still trying to figure out why, in the Graphics.HGL library, is the
timer not treated as the other events (mouse clics, key pressing... ?

For instance see :

As I understand, the timer in a HGL GUI application must be treated by
waiting for a tick to occur (rather than doing useful things and being
warned with maybeGetWindowEvent if one occurs). This sounds stupid to me and
gives rise to non responding situations.

Im a misunderstanding something ? Is it a weakness of HGL and does it force
me to change all my approach and turn to another library ?

Any help would be appreciated.
