I would first try to reduce MAXVARS and MAXUPVALUES.  You can redefine
them in etc/luser_config.h (make sure your build is setup to read this
file, though).  These are used to create arrays that are a major
source of stack usage.  If reducing these allows you more iterations
before your crash, it very well may be stack related.

There are a few ways of detecting stack overflow problems in uClinux. 
Try searching the uClinux mailing list.
