You have hit the FAQ item 


The GMP library can sometime use a lot of system stack. 

There are several way to avoid the problem, but the simplest is to
increase the system stack size,

Before starting GP from the shell, do:

   If your shell is sh-based (bash, ksh, sh, zsh):
    ulimit -s 20000

   If your shell is csh-based (csh, tcsh):
    limit stacksize 20000
