bug#33034: `unwind-protect' cleanup form is not executed if body dies in

OK, but why does it hit the limit? Logically, by the time cleanup form
is called, all the (overflow) stack frames should be removed and the
cleanup form should see practically empty stack. It shouldn't be much
different from calling cleanup without overflowing the stack to begin
with.
