The problem here is that Squeak contexts only come in two sizes:
smallFrame: 12 slots
largeFrame: 32 slots
smallFrames cover 94% of all methods, and including largeFrames gets you
to 99.975%, but it turns out that the number of temporaries plus the max
stack depth in the "execute" method in the STones80 benchmark is just a
bit larger than a largeFrame allows.
Since Squeak allocates a unique temp for each temp name, you might try
modifying the code for that method to "reuse" temp names, where possible,
instead of using a unique temp name.
