Actually, the Lisp stack trace shows the crash in string-match, which
is a regex routine.

This is a good idea, except that since stack is a runtime problem it
seems that both false negatives and false positives would be really
likely. I'm pretty sure we can get that information internally and we
should spit out a warning at runtime (this would show up at build time
when dumping and compiling), and also print that information in M-x
There's also been talk of forcing a reasonable stack size (I suppose
OS/X supports getrlimit/setrlimit?), but I'm not familiar enough with
that kind of code to do it myself.
