Yes! you're right.

For the stack overflow, it's true that it's a kind of issue. It's a
bit complicated for my case, since I'm not using bison's semantic
stack to push and pop the terminals and to link them together in a
tree form. I'm using one of my own right now and I'm really feeling
like I'm duplicating that functionality so may be I'm going to rewrite
the actions to use bison in the standard way (i.e, actions use $$, $1,
$2, etc.). But I also believe that it's also a limitation in bison too
(its stack size is fixed).

Best regards,
Ilyes Gouta.
