I recently committed a patch that should considerably reduce stack
usage in jc1.

Ok, this maxssiz discovery was before your patch. I have to retry then with default 8MB maxssiz. And report back.

Ok, I withdraw the maxssiz advise. I looks like this is not needed (anymore). I built and tested a current svn trunk with maxssiz 8MB.

Sorry for the noise.
