No problems here using no flags either.  ghc-5.00
Hmmm... hugs Feb2001 seems to complain about my source (different reason).

Which version of which compiler?

(Btw, upon further review I cant think of a good reason for that function
to exist.  liftIOtoMyMonad can do anything liftIOtoMyMonad_ can handle.
Essentially liftIOtoMyMonad_ = liftIOtoMyMonad but with a much more
restrictive type)
