a version that includes processStatus?)
Does the runtime system ensure that no thread will starve for processor
My initial diagnosis:
by looking at log files that this program produces, it seems that the
thread in question is failing while receiving a response from a server.
Here is a simplified exerpt:
h <- connectTo server port
