Make the stack bigger. You can do this by editing MCL's LSIZ resource with ResEdit
or using the :memory-options keyword to save-application (documented in the
release notes that were distributed with MCL 2.0). The following worked for me
to create an MCL that would successfully print your example:

(save-application "MCL temp"
                  :size (ash 4096 10)
                  :memory-options '(:stack-minimum #.(ash 1024 10)
                                    :stack-maximum #.(ash 1024 10)))
