I've already investigated that: it is due to runCom.

I've discussed that with other haskellers here:

I did extensive profiling: after reaching a given level, memory usage
seems to stop increasing. But I need some feed back to understand if
there are other problems I'm not aware of. This is the reason for the
0.1 release, after all.

Please let me know your opinion.
