> An alternative would be to remove completly the overflowed flag with its fatal error. It was introduced during large refactoring of Python, maybe the bug cannot occur anymore?

By the way, it doesn't exist in Python 2 at all. Try attached program.

$ python2 
first recursion error
second recursion error

$ python3 
first recursion error
Fatal Python error: Cannot recover from stack overflow.
