New submission from maniram maniram <maniandram01 at gmail.com>:

When you run the following code, Python 3 (not Python 2) crashes.
Interestingly, Python 2.7 doesn't seem to be affected and correctly raises an error about recursion ( so this must be a regression ).
The code's recursion should be detected and Python should raise a RuntimeError about recursion.

def recurse():
    try:raise Exception #An arbitary exception
    except Exception:recurse()

After running this code Python 3 says "Fatal Python error: Cannot recover from stack overflow." and then Python aborts .
In Jython, this code doesn't crash it.
