The first argument cannot be nil. Because the first argument is an
optional thread, and nil is not a thread, the function gets confused
about what is what. The call without the nil gives a correct answer.

The call with nil probably should give an error; 5.2 does:

> =debug.traceback(nil, "foo", 1)
stdin:1: bad argument #2 to 'traceback' (number expected, got string)
stack traceback:
	[C]: in function 'traceback'
	stdin:1: in main chunk
	[C]: in ?
