I'd guess because of something to do with the system iconv.

I have a Replace.hs benchmark in the main text repo, just to be sure we're
talking about the same thing. Factoring out the time spent on I/O, with GHC
HEAD, my replace code takes twice the space and time of that in the
stringsearch package. Given that the space involved is just 121KB maximum
residency while processing a 124MB file, I'm not concerned about it. And the
time required isn't a bad place to start from, I think.
By the way, as this implies, I can't reproduce your space behaviour at all.
I can now say more. Looking at Data.Text.Lazy.replace,

, I also got a space leak with that for BS.Lazy's intercalate and

How did you observe the space leak? Looking at -hT charted with hp2ps shows
me nothing, and the program executes in constant space regardless of input
