Thanks for pointing out the location; I did a bit of "iterative
refinement" and found that 1635 was sufficient whilst 1625 failed.
That isn't quite a scientific evaluation of what ought to be
necessary, but it sure seems that the value can need to be higher than
1200, and it's pretty plausible that 1635 only helps until an extra
couple elements get added to the parser, increasing stack usage.
