Thanks. But I have to isolate the emergency  gc and integrate it. Is there any documentation about it somewhere, that gives me more insight on the files/code changes that this would involve?

Time to move to Lua 5.2 then... Perhaps it won't be that difficult.
We can try to help.

Probably very hard to do. The emergency garbage collector contains lots

Very hard to identify. The diffs bewteen 5.1 and 5.2 are huge.
diff -u contains around 20000 lines, the size of the Lua code itself.
