In several versions of the code, now unfortunately lost because of a crash 
on a power failure (which is extremely rare where I live), I did not get 
any "goOn" despite the value of gTst3 indicating I should, or where, 
according to your analysis, I should have gotten a single "fail," I 
didn't.  If I can prod myself into recreating now lost code (unfortunate, 
sending out the wrong version of the code and losing the right one, only 
to replace it with one that seems to work now [yes, I'm careful about 
deleting .o and .hi files]), I'll do so, and report it as a bug according 
to the instructions in another post. Since I have workarounds and I am 
using a back-dated version of GHC, it probably isn't worth too much more 
attention, although I'll keep a wary eye open.

Thanks to all for attention.
