I know :)

I have now tested it, with both (simple) servers and I can't reproduce the 
problem (ghc-6.12.1 and ghc-6.10.3).

0) compile everything with -O2 (I always do, but for testing purposes I've 
also compiled the servers without optimisations for the lazy ByteStrings)

1) start server

2) start client

3) server prints
and exits

4) press return to shut down client

Only with strict ByteStrings does the server wait until I shut down the 
client before printing "\NUL\NUL\NUL\NUL\NUL\NUL\NUL\ETX" and exiting, but 
that is to be expected, isn't it?
