Interesting. I was just talking over IRC with Frederic about this. One
theory about his earlier failures was not having a proper stack frame when
calling the function. This is probably a bogus theory and there was
probably something else that broke the code. But there is no harm in
allocating 80 bytes (it worked before). Thus, I rather error on the side
of least change than risk it.
