I hate to see any requests for help go unanswered here, but this one
might be tough. I think you need to give some more information,
otherwise the suggestions are going to be very general. Can you put
the Haskell source code on a website somewhere and link to it. Since
it's a network service, an example request and reply might be good to

In general, you should check that you are correctly flushing your
connection. If you are using Handles to interface to the network, they
can buffer the response. hFlush[1] may need to be called when you have
finished generating it.
