    That happens after the initial stack overflow with a trace (from what
    i could discern before it scrolled into oblivion) in NFS -> IP path
    similar to the other non-recursive trace, see below.

    Fair enough but have a look at the other fault from that bug though:

    That one did not recurse for some reason.
