[Haskell-beginners] recvFrom return value different from length of resulting string

It works when I am using Network.Socket.ByteString.
I assume this is because the other recvFrom encodes the message with
peekCStringLen, but I am not sure.
Should the 2 implementations not behave the same besides returning a
different datastructure for the received data??
