This is a bug in Hugs but your code is incorrect, too.  You get into infinite 
recursion for some argument values and I suppose, Hugs doesn't handle 
infinite recursions well.  At least, Hugs sometimes dies with a segementation 
fault on Linux when it actually should cancel the computation cleanly because 
of a stack/heap overflow caused by infinite recursion.
