[plt-scheme] Profiling...

Invariably, I misunderstood something in the documentation for 
errortrace. I also made use of Danny's notes at [1] that provided a few 

A module 'foo', saved in 'foo.scm':

(module foo mzscheme
   (require (lib "errortrace.ss" "errortrace"))
   (instrumenting-enabled #t)
   (profiling-enabled #t)
   (profiling-record-enabled #t)
   (profile-paths-enabled #t)

   ;; Perhaps I might 'require' a module here?

   (define (fact n)
     (if (zero? n)
         (* n (fact (sub1 n)))))

   (fact 5)

   (output-profile-results #t #t)

Sorting profile data...
Total samples: 0

I'm a bit at a loss as to what I should do to get profiling data out. 
I'm using the 349.100 binary for OSX, but the behavior is consistent 
whether I use 349.100, 301.14, or 300... which implies I'm doing 
something wrong.

I'll keep looking, and probably realize some bone-headed mistake myself 
in a minute...
