Unfortunately, this output goes to "a system error-reporting channel" [1] which may not be tty. It also means the output is not in a hs-err log should the VM then exit with a fatal error. This has historically made it harder to triage libgraal bugs (i.e. the console output is usually required in addition to the hs-err crash log).

You could add this output to the last line instead of burning an extra line.
