Yeah, I think that's on purpose...

Do you know where it crashes? IIRC, L->callinfostack is allowed to be
NULL; it just means you're at the top level of the call stack. Unlike
the regular Lua stack, L->callinfostack is a linked list, so when it's
NULL that means it's empty.
Unfortunately there are definitely some fundamental bugs left in the
yield() patch; also unfortunately I'm short on Lua-hacking-time these
days, so all I can offer right now is general pointers to anyone who
wants to delve into this.
