I suspect that you invoked a runaway recursive function --- it called
itself enough times to exceed Python's max recursion depth; just like
the message says.
I don't recommend reload(), just exit and restart (and import).
I think reload is a hack and I'm sure I've seen caveats regarding
this in the docs.
