[Haskell-cafe] ghc/profiling and very big "entries"

I got this line in the profile output:
COST CENTRE MODULE no. entries %time %alloc %time %alloc ticks bytes
addDeduction L42s.Maths.Prover.Base 22730 2362045 1.1 4.6 52.3 52.6 81 614808848
And it seems that "addDeduction" has been called 2 362 045 times ?
But from other (personal) log files this function should be called
less than 10 000 times. I wonder if the laziness of haskell can
grow the "entries" field which is defined by:
"The number of times this particular point in the call tree was
entered.", but what "enter" means for ghc is a question for me.
Thank you for answering
