I had a little bit more time to look into the lightening
implementation last night. I've attached a patch that is less horrible
and more correct than my previous one. It reserves the stack space
regardless of the number of parameters and appears to work. But I'm
new to the lightening code base, so I'm not convinced it is the
correct solution. It's just the solution I was left with after my time
ran out. I wanted to post this patch as a replacement to the prior one
in case people did want to do more testing with Guile 3.0 on Cygwin

With that, I will let more experienced people come up with the
appropriate solution. Happy hacking, everybody!
