I'm experiencing the same issues with compiled 64 bit working
correctly, but interpreted causing all sorts of issues with Scotty.

>> if the compiled version works correctly, could you post a repo of some example codlets that *should work* on ghc 7.6 so i can sort out if its fixable.   There were some similar problems with gtk / cairo for a while on OS X, and i was able to sort out reproducible instructions for getting things to work in that case.
