Mark Dickinson <dickinsm at gmail.com> added the comment:

The recursion limit exists precisely so that Python can avoid overflowing 
the C stack and hence crashing.  So if you increase the recursion limit 
without also increasing the stack space assigned to the process, you 
should expect a crash.

Closing as won't fix.
