--- Comment #1 from Tom Tromey <tromey at sourceware dot org> ---
I think the problem is here:

            /* Field access in structs and untagged unions works like C.  */
            *pos = pc;
            result = evaluate_subexp_standard (expect_type, exp, pos, noside);

This re-evaluates the particular subexpression again.
This means an explosion when the LHS itself does this.
