So you are saying the StackOverflow may come from a thread which has
specified its own stack size at construction time and therefore the
default stack size settings are ignored. But I did a fast grep through
the jdk/ and langtools/ repository and couldn't find any occurrence of
such a 4-argument Thread constructor (i.e. "Thread(ThreadGroup group,
Runnable target, String name, long stackSize)").

If a normal thread doesn't honor the -XX:ThreadStackSize settings I'd
consider that a bug and fix that one first.
