[developers] "nested unification context"

I'm one of the ones experiencing the problem. Unfortunately I haven't been
able to reliably reproduce it. All I can say is that it only happens after
loading a grammar that has already been loaded. Which makes me wonder if
it's something some kind of cruft floating around that isn't being cleaned
up somehow. It also seems to happen in concentrated amounts, then disappear
for a while, so maybe something about certain grammar states. If I
encounter concentration of errors I will try to see if I can work out how
to replicate it.
