I'm working on a program using FreeBSD v 1.7.
This project has been going for years and has a lot of functions calls
some using far more arguments than these. I've never seen this error before.
I have one funct8ion that has suddenly refused to run because on the
call I get a 'stack overflow' message.
I'm passing a pointer to a structure and then 5 ints. Everything is
fine, but I need to pass a bit more data. If I pass a sixth int I get
the overflow message.
I've increased the stack from the default 4096 to 20 * 1024 * 1024

Voice messaging on both lines, but I don't often check it.
Email is more reliable.
