Description

The documentation claims that the default heap size is unlimited:
http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/runtime-control.html

At least on windows, the default seems to be 256megs. I think this is just a typo in the documentation, although unlimited heap by default could be nice in some cases.

It was previously unlimited by default only on Unix, we didn't support an unlimited heap size on Windows. In 6.6 this has been fixed, and the defualt heap size on Windows is now unlimited too.
