I can't reproduce this, but I wonder if the processing is genuinely on
the border line of the allowed stack depth.  Does it help if you add
this to elisp.test just before the problem:

(debug-set! stack (* (cadr (memq 'stack (debug-options))) 2))

Also, can you confirm whether you see this problem with current CVS,
i.e. without your patch?

On the other hand, if it is a genuine stack depth problem, I'd expect
this one to fail also, since the stack depth of the code for
(top-repl) is a lot more than that of the code that script.c generates
for a -l arg.

Yes.  This seems pretty odd.
