I took the "return value of 2" to mean lua_pcall returned 2 (which I believe
is LUA_ERRRUN) so perhaps the function is not on the stack? Simply pushing
some random things onto the stack (none of which are functions) and then
calling lua_pcall will give you a return value of 2. It could be the
function is on the stack but the number of arguments (nargs) supplied to
lua_pcall is incorrect. I think further details from Joey are needed.
