On the Vic, the RESTORE key can easily cause a condition that could be a stack overflow caused by triggering an NMI while the NMI handler is executing. Just press the key so that it barely makes contact, or press it repeatedly, and you will be greeted with a cleared screen and the READY prompt, as if you pressed STOP+RESTORE or executed a BRK instruction.
