- Subject: Bug report: tbc link not updated after rotating the stack.

While using luaL_Buffer, I find something weird: when I
init a luaL_Buffer, add a large string into it, and then
remove the bottom element of the stack, an exception
"attempt to call a nil value" throws.
Here is the code(compiled with lua 5.4.3):
main(int argc, char **argv)
L = luaL_newstate();
lua_pushliteral(L, "nothing special");
luaL_addlstring(&b, dummy, 1025);
Jump into the codebase and I find that after adding a large string
into luaL_Buffer, the internal buffer is replaced by an UBox which
is made to be a tbc value and is linked into L->tbclist, However,
when I call lua_remove(), it rotates the bottom element to the top
but forgets(?) to update L->tbclist, which still points to the top
of the stack, and then lua_pop() pops the top element, in which it
tries to call the nonexistent "__close" metamethod of the element
and thus throws an exception.
I think it is a bug but not absolutely sure about that, because
rotating the stack is so common that I cannot imagine what other
tbc values will be(I haven't read the whole codebase yet :)), and
btw, the usage of luaL_Buffer is also a little weird thus maybe I
just missed something. Wish someone can help me with this problem.
