on *third* look summing up to k = nu/2 at minimum will a achieve the result of not blowing up the asymptotic series:

nu^2 - (2k-1)^2.  And it will do that without a check.

This stopping criterion should work even near x=nu which would be the most difficult case.  The sum could go further for larger x but let's just go with your termination criterion for now. Later, with some experimentation, we could sum up to nu/2 at a minimum *then* snoop forward until the terms start drifting up. Or we could just solve k_max for this case as a function of x. Also, we may never need these extras.
For what I could see, 'term' stops to contributing to P, Q few steps before k = nu /2.

Right.  I can see these terms rising, sometimes quite high, then falling.
In many experiments, the sums converge before the terms blow up.

In my old impl, I gave up too easily.
Perhaps, in general, one could wait until the terms started decreasing, *then* if subsequent terms start growing again exit loop.
But it seems I never get to that point before sum convergence.

On the good side it seems that if x >= 20 nu then you can go quite high in nu.
