> The highest possible limit is platform-dependent. A user may need to set the limit higher when they have a program that requires deep recursion and a platform that supports a higher limit. This should be done with care, because a too-high limit can lead to a crash.

I think this is a known case where the stack limit is hit depending on the operating system before RecursionError can be raised when a higher recursion limit is set. On my machine (Mac 10.10.4) this segfaults on 2.7 but raises RecurstionError on Python 3.7.1. Increasing the limit to 200000 causes segfault on 3.7.1.
