Comment(by simonmar):

 The laziness here is in the contents of the `STRef`, where you can't put a
 bang pattern.  Now the problem is that because you're creating a circular
 list, there must be at least ''one'' lazy element in it, because you're
 using laziness to create the circularity.  So you could probably add one
 bang pattern in `twoItemList`, but not two (I haven't tried this).
