Three possible causes:
- Either you're attempting to yield from the main thread
  (this doesn't work, it must be a coroutine)
- or you're not using coroutine.resume/lua_resume() to run your
- or you're creating the coroutine with lua_newthread() from C.

Yielding across C frames only works if you create the coroutine
with a C stack. So either use coroutine.create/coroutine.wrap from
Lua or use lua_newcthread() (note the 'c') from C.

Your use of lua_yield() is perfectly fine in the context of Coco.
