Interesting.  It looks like the problem is that the result of the
previous call to global() is itself being saved into the global
namespace, as the '_' value.  When you next reference globals,
you get a recursive structure.

This likely wouldn't be an issue if run from inside a .py file
that was started at the command line -- it's just a side effect
of the interactive mode.
