Thanks, everything works now.

What should I read to better understand the difference
for the type system between using <- and 'let'? That is
not intuitive for me.

About layout, I used to filter my code to better fit
everyone taste before posting to this list. The filter
stoped working due to some problems in 'Language.Haskell',
but I'll rewrite it with haskell-src-exts before
posting again.
