I'm really inclined to skip this just looks too dangerous, in that
it could break the test suite on other platforms -- who knows what kind of
errors the "limit stacksize unlimited" command will yield? Or what machines
might actually work, but would not set STACK to "unlimited"?

We can have failures in cygwin.
