[Haskell-cafe] Where does memory go?

I compiled a simple one-liner: main = print "Blah".

This is the GC report:

       5,620 bytes allocated in the heap
           0 bytes copied during GC

           0 collections in generation 0 (  0.00s)
           0 collections in generation 1 (  0.00s)

           1 Mb total memory in use

Where did the memory go?

What is 5K and what is (more suprisingly) 1Mb?

	Thanks, Joel
