The GLUT-backend calls system.exit when the window is closed, because 'exitMainLoop' is only defined within freeglut, which is not by default installed on non-linux platforms.
There is hence no real point in running gloss applications with the GLUT-backend from GHCi.

I'll try to find a mountain lion install, and test if there's a difference between GLUT and GLFW
