Trying to use reportbug I found that some libc routines may require larger stack sizes[1]. In this particular case, resolv/nss_dns/dns-host.c wants 64k buffer for its operation and reportbug crashes. Unfortunately, we have small stacks[2].

It would be good to make __libc_alloca_cutoff smaller. For example, vm_page_size.
