- Subject: lua_pushstring, luaC_checkGC and top changing (grows by 2)

I'm seeing that when GCTM is called after a luaC_checkGC where the
threshold is hit, the lua_gettop(L) grows by 2.
This happens within GCTM where lua_gettop(L) == 0 and L->top is added by 2.
Then the luaD_call doesn't consume the two from L->top.
This only happens when the first GCTM is called.
All this happens while Lua is in a infinite loop.
A hook count is set every 2 instructions, and yields.
Everything is ran through a loop with lua_resume which every LUA_YIELD
it gets from a table indexed by a string.
Everything uses luabind in C++, and I can't really show the code that
happens this exactly.
But it is very obvious from running the debugger that after calling
lua_pushstring the lua_gettop(L) goes from 0 to 3, and this happens
because luaC_checkGC returns with lua_gettop(L) == 2 and then
lua_pushlstring increments the top after setting the string in the
This happens exactly after indexing the table 63 times. IOW, on the
Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
