[Rd] Stack checking, core dumps, and embedding R

I will say this first -- I can't copy/paste the error message from the screen, so it's being retyped. Errors might occur. SORRY.

I've been experiencing some interesting stack warnings recently when moving from R 2.2.x to the R 2.3.0 series and the R 2.4.0 series. In particular, I'm getting warnings of "Error: C stack usage is too close to the limit" before segfaulting, and this wasn't happening under the 2.2.x series.

Here's the question statement: (ONLY) In the situation where one is embedding R, is anyone else seeing this occur with recent (past 2 weeks) versions of R (both the 2.3.x and 2.4.x series)?

(it doesn't happen in the non-embedded case for me, at least not
recently -- there was an SVN version recently where I did get that behavior in the non-embedded case, but it was "fixed" before I had a chance to report).

I'm still debugging it; hopefully will have a bug report while I'm on
(working) vacation in the states next week.
