It is fixed (i.e. doesn't occur) with the following changes.

Here n is the running stack depth.  Missing this decrement will cause
the "stack count incorrect" warning but is actually benign, as it only
means that scm_make_stack allocates a bit more space for the stack than
it really needs.

I'm pretty sure this last else branch is unhittable, hence the added
abort ().

Here n is the number of frames still unused in the allocated stack
object.  Missing this increment will cause the "stack count incorrect"
warning, and will make read_frames think it's filled up all the
available stack frames when there's actually still one frame unused;
it's not benign, because it can cause information to be missing from a
stack trace.  (But unfortunately it doesn't appear to be the fix for the
missing VM frames problem.)
