It seems that if such an overflow occurs, and some bogus value is passed to construct_object, eventually Gnash will die with an exception because of too many calls to SafeStack::pop(). As far as I can tell there is no validation of nargs even if its value isn't the result of an overflow.

In ASHandlers.cpp:

2306 unsigned nargs = toNumber(env.pop(), getVM(env));

may cause an int overflow dur to the conversation from 64bits to 32bits

And then it is used:

2325 as_object* newobj = construct_object(constructor, env, nargs);

which will cause problems.
