Lily report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Lily <2ch.owner at gmail.com>:

Recursively getting __call__ method from existing __call__ causes interpreter infinitely grow in memory and calling resulting __call__.__call__...__call__.__call__() chain results in crash.

Platform: Windows 7 (x64)
Version: Python 2.7 (r27:82525) win32

Suggested solution:
* let the obj.__call__.__call__ point to obj.__call__
