Hmm, I think it won't work by itself though, just doing

    (stream-flush (stream-range 1 1000000))

also crashes, due to the head of the stream being referenced from the C
stack somewhere (I can get the address from gdb, but I can't figure out
how to get to the corresponding C variable from there).
