So this seems to be a rather fundamental issue in checkstackGC; it
ensures that there's stack space beyond L->top for the specified number
of entries, reallocating the stack if need be, but then it possibly
performs a garbage collection, and the garbage collector can and will
_immediately shrink the stack down again_. This can (and in this case
does) undo the stack growth that was just done, and so the
argument-completion loop in pretailcall stomps off the end of the stack.

Maybe something should have been assigning to ci->top before allowing
the GC to run, to protect the newly-allocated stack entries?
