Your problem is not an infinite recursion problem, the problem is that you
ran out of memory. I assume the stack depth is 50, as it is by default in
options.h, but that traceback was only 25 lines long. I'd look into finding
a possible memory leak somewhere. The first line of the PANIC is the clue.
