Thank you for detail infos , sounds like an interesting and
challenging "coroutine/threading" application.

But can you explain in more detail, how a user could try to "call a
piece of Lua that does not exist"?

You mean, run to the end of the main program by some label ::End::, as
e. g. "goto End", and then Lua finished and somehow "runs into

Or you mean, invoking some C function from Lua, and this C function
then would invoke Lua Code which does not exist / possibly mixing up
the Lua stack? (but in this case you usually can be happy if such a
panic message would appear I think...)
