malloc does not use the PARI stack so your problem is probably
elsewhere. Send me your script if you want.

If your script run under gp, it is better to use pari_malloc (gp_malloc
in older version of PARI) instead of malloc, because this protect you
against control-C being pressed during the malloc call.
