I concur with Stefan. Some parts of the compiler are recursive. The crash is expected for enough complex programs, and the size of C stack is platform depended. There are few hard-coded limits (MAXINDENT, CO_MAXBLOCKS) that may prevent the crash by converting it to exception, but they don't take role in this case (MAXINDENT is too large (100), and CO_MAXBLOCKS limits only the level of nested "for" and "try" blocks).

sys.setrecursionlimit doesn't have relation to C stack.

Increasing the size of C stack on Windows can solve this issue for this particular case.
