Not the stack overflow yet, but see attached for fixing the elisp apply error.

It's not rocket science, and you probably guessed at that solution
already - but I think it really is the _right_ fix, because

- the principle of the elisp integration is that there is a new value
#nil, which acts as EOL in list contexts, and as #f in boolean

- as one example of this, the non-VM apply accepts and handles a list
whose tail is #nil

- therefore the VM apply should too.

What do you think?  Let me know if you'd like me to commit.  (Note I
haven't checked in detail if any of the other places that use
PUSH_LIST should definitely NOT allow a list whose tail is #nil.  If
yes, I guess we'll need two variants of PUSH_LIST.)
