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.
resolution: -> wont fix
status: open -> closed
