[Haskell-cafe] Problem with System.Timeout in Windows

I have been trying to use System.timeout in windows, but for some
reason it doesn't work, a concrete example is:
main = do
rsp <- timeout 10000000 $ simpleHTTP $ getRequest "http://10.1.2.3"
case rsp of
Just rsp -> print $ show rsp
Nothing -> error "Nothing"
In this case I would expect to receive "Nothing" after 10 seconds, but
it ignores the timeout function.
I'm compiling with -threaded, but it does not work either, I'm using ghc 6.12.2.
Does someone know what could be going wrong ?
