    61 A0: On Windows there is a known issue with the version of freeglut that comes with the Haskell Platform 2012.2.0.0. Upgrade your Haskell Platform or install freeglut >= 2.8.0.[[br]]
    62 A1: On other systems, you can also try upgrading freeglut to the latest version. If doing this solves a crash-bug on a non-Windows machine then please email me about it `gloss [wibble] ouroborus.net`and I'll update this wiki.
