If you find out how to stop this, let me know. Most of the programs I
write can't be stopped by the ctrl . command. Usually, though, I just
kill mathematica from the ctrl-alt-delete screen. I rarely have to
reboot the machine, but it does happen occasionally. I wish the 256
limit on recursion applied to error messages.
