The fatal error is raised if the stack overflows in the process of
handling RuntimeError. In certain cases, the C algorithms won't bail out
if a RuntimeError is raised, and just catch it. If that then causes
another stack overflow, Python gives up. One such case is an overflow
occuring during a comparison operation of a dictionary lookup, IIRC.
