RangeError when using queue with 5000+ tasks.

See original GitHub issue

I have made a pull request with a test that fails.

RangeError Maximum call stack size exceeded

It is basicaly this

var q = async.queue(function(task,cb) { cb(); })

for (var i=0; i< 5000; i++) {
  q.push({ index: i });


When cb is called there can be RangeError’s I don’t know enough to figure out why though.

You need to call cb() asynchronously. Try setImmediate(cb) instead.

Btw, Frame.js v2 resolved this issue.
