I don't mind making it bigger, but a larger size does come with a cost: the larger the initial stack size the less threads you can have without trashing the system (or running out of address space on a 32-bit build). 

I'm fine with increasing it to 1M, which is a nice round number build not larger. 

BTW. I haven't looked up the default stack size for the main thread on OSX.
