I'd guess that type-inference is allowing rgbliste to use Integers
when farbliste is commented out, but restricting it to 16 Bit types
when it is uncommented. I don't have the GTK module installed on this
machine, but try adding some type annotations to see if this is the
The maxBound of Word16 appears to confirm my suspicion:
Prelude GHC.Word> maxBound :: Word16
