Typical problem is that you are opening a group (with { or \begin{...)
and not closing it again.  That means that a lot of things
subsequentially get done locally instead of at the top document level,
and every assignment or similar that is executed locally affects the
save stack.

Changing the size in the binary/configuration would likely just be
masking the problem.
