Yes, there is a bug here. (It is a memory violation, so the crash per se
depends on the circumstances and may not be easily reproducible.)
Thanks for the report.

It does, but we can avoid this little overhead in the common case
(non-vararg functions).  We can either add p->numparams in the parser
(so that the final maxstacksize of vararg functions already reflect
this extra need) or check for numparams inside adjust_varargs, only for
vararg functions. I will check what is best.

Again, many thanks for the report.
