That must be it! -- I use indeed the standalone mingw toolset. Thanks
for pointing this out, I was already in despair trying to find the
cause of the bug :-)

I will try to change my setup to use the default cygwin tools.

Thanks for your prompt response,
All the best,
   Daan Leijen.

ps. Would there be a workaround? wxHaskell needs the standalone
mingw toolset to avoid link errors with ghc -- so it is not so
convenient for me to switch between toolsets.
