Hello pari-dev,

the PARI_stack_limit functionality can sometimes lead to false
positives: PARI assumes that the stack is essentially empty when
pari_init_opts() is called, that there is only one stack, that
getrlimit(RLIMIT_STACK) is constant. These assumptions are not
necessarily true.

I suggest you read the documentation of the function

OK, I didn't realize that pari_stackcheck_init() was meant to be called by user code. That should solve my problem indeed.
