Hi Adam, sorry for late answer. Here is my example , but yours
doesn't work on my PC too. And it's strange it works on yours.
According to documentation for Control.Concurrent module  every
other thread should be blocked.
> With the -threaded option, only foreign calls with the unsafe attribute will block all other threads.
And after changing in the network package FFI declaration for
c_recvfrom from unsafe to safe both examples start working.
There are two solutions I see now. The first is to copy-paste
definitions from the network package to mine with changing "unsafe" to
"safe" for FFI declaration. The second is to use unblocking sockets.
This by the way will help to get rid of hack-like solution of stopping
server by closing listening socket, but it will get more effort.
