New submission from Benjamin Peterson <musiccomposition at gmail.com>:

Given this code:

def f():
    for i in f():
        yield i

for i in f(): print i

2.6 gives:
Exception RuntimeError: 'maximum recursion depth exceeded in
__subclasscheck__' in <type 'exceptions.RuntimeError'> ignored
Exception RuntimeError: 'maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling
a Python object' in <type 'exceptions.RuntimeError'> ignored
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "<stdin>", line 2, in f
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

2.5 and 3.0 do not have this problem.
