[Haskell-cafe] peekCString & free memory

I get a segfault when I do
str <- peekCString ptr
return (Just str)
But not when I don't free the C pointer.
I also get the same behaviour with ByteString.packCString...
Could you please tell me if the memory is correctly freed by GHC when I
don't do it myself?
And how can I specify a custom free function (i.e. xmlFree function in
Maybe I should use a data type with two fields : the String/ByteString and
the ForeignPtr to the CString?
