[Haskell-cafe] Question about allocaArray and friends

In C, if you try to "alloca" too much memory, then the stack gets  
overwritten and bad things happen.  Does GHC exhibit the same behavior  
with allocaArray and the like?  Is there a way to find out how much is  
safe to allocate?

Thanks in advance for the help,
