I can't see any specific call to alloca(). Could it be called indirectly.

Compiling with -O0 and the Stack backtrace goes away.  One of the programs
that does it is xjig from the autobuilder. This is quite a small program so
I should be able to narrow it down some more.

I did notice with xjig the wimpslot slot quickly climbs to 340MiB and
system heap goes from 200k to 700k then the machine locks.
