Would be interesting to see if you can trigger it on a compile without
-O2. If not, that might point to a place where we forgot to remember a
value on the stack.

IIRC, the whole business with grob-array skipping marking was an
attempt at cutting a corner for performance and/or limiting stack
depth when doing GC marking. It may very well not be relevant today,
especially for BGC, which has an explicitly allocated mark stack.

Does it help if you mark X/Y parents in Grob::mark_smob?
