stack fault

An error condition that occurs when the stack is either empty or full. See stack overflow.

stack overflow

An error condition that occurs when there is no room in the stack for a new item. This error condition can also occur when other things go awry; for example, a bad expansion card or one that isn't seated properly in the slot can cause erratic signals eventually leading to a stack overflow error message. Contrast with stack underflow. See stack.
