Oh, I just need to run it in the lua shell.


I just tested it. After I set the stack limit, lua won’t crash.

I am pretty sure you also didn't see any instruction about adding the

option -fsanitize=address to compile Lua. With this option, the code

consumes more stack than usual, and therefore the stack limit must be

adapted accordingly.


If you prefer, you can do that in luaconf.h, too. I suggested

debug.setcstacklimit as a quick fix without the need to recompile Lua.
