You are not supposed to continue using Emacs as usual after it
recovered from a C stack overflow.  You are supposed to exit Emacs and
restart the session.

The C stack overflow recovery is provided to allow you to save your
edits instead of losing them.

P.S.  I was somehow certain that we say the above somewhere in the
docs, but I cannot find it, so maybe I was dreaming.  Patches to add
that are welcome.
