there's definitely something about initializing libcurl:
uses nice phrases like "may be letal in multi-threading"
the documentation of Haskell curl
just says "withCurlDo should be called once"
while in fact it should be much stronger: "must be called exactly once"?
anyway I temporarily dropped curl (replaced by system "wget" )
and the erratic behaviour persists. Now it looks like this:

and indeed, gethostbyname is famous for being non re-entrant.
(packages I use are HTTP, hxt, happstack-server;
and I can't drop all of them ...)
