Hi, I encountered the following bug.
Below is the file I load into Mathematica:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
$RecursionLimit=Infinity
f[1]=1;f[2]=1;f[n_]:=f[n]=f[n-1]+f[n-2]
f[10075]
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I define Fibonacci sequence recursively, while caching intermediate
values. The program gives segmentation fault trying to find f[10075].
Any number higher than 10075 causes the same behavior.  A thing to
note is that after I've calculated f[10074], I can calculated f[10075]
and higher, using cached values.

Has any1 noticed this behavior?  
Thanks
