I think stubborn is deprecated.  From gc/gc.h:

   /* Note that the GC_malloc_stubborn support doesn't really exist        */
   /* anymore.  MANUAL_VDB provides comparable functionality.              */

Did you look at the MANUAL_VDB stuff in the source?  It might help.  I
don't know anything about that code though.
