This should be supported.  Just fixed this in stable-2.0.

In this case I agree, there is no bug in the expander or in the
compiler.  We should be able to grow stacks, but that is tricky with
stable-2.0.  Ideally we would be able to link different stack segments
together with overflow/underflow handlers, as in the Dybvig paper, but
that would require some experimentation that would best be done on

I pushed a patch based on yours to add a GUILE_STACK_SIZE environment
variable.  I hate environment variables but hopefully we can remove it
in 2.2.

Thanks for looking into this!
