fixST in GHC

Hello all,

I'm experimenting with the ST monad GHC/Hugs extension and came across a 
puzzling omisson: in GHC 4.06 if I import the LazyST module instead of the 
standard one then the knot-tying fixST combinator is not defined.

Aparently the reason for this omisson is not documented in the ghc manual...

BTW, in Hugs both LazyST/ST define fixST.
