[New-bugs-announce] [issue7614] Python 2.6.4 segfaults

New submission from ttsiod <ttsiodras at gmail.com>:

I found a nice yield-based implementation of the sieve of Eratosthenes.

I tried to find the last prime number less than 1.000.000 (1M) - so I 
had to increase the recursion limit (via sys.setrecursionlimit).
It seemed to work - but after running for about 3 minutes, the
Python interpreter (2.6.4) crashed with a segmentation fault.

I am attaching the code - it uses no libraries except for "sys"
(it needs it to set the recursionlimit).
