A pcall doesn't by itself modify any I/O streams or the process
environment.  Could you show more context regarding where the
lua_pcall happens?  In particular, where are you getting the Lua
state, and what do you do with the Lua stack before and after the
pcall?  Does this still happen if you replace the Lua code with
trivial Lua code that does nothing except throw an error?
