When difflib.compare() is used on two moderately large sequences with little or no common elements, a RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded occurs. 

This error became apparent when testing another bug (see: issue 19217) in the AssertEquals() method of the unit test library.

A sample program to reproduce this issue in 3.4 is attached. To repo in 2.7 remove the list() wrapper from the range call.
