+Summary: Looping constructor kills the runtime
+I'm not sure if this is also a compiler bug or not.
+It's possible to create a looping constructor doing something like this:
+Foo (string bar) : this (bar) { }
+which ends up killing the runtime.  The only thing you see is "Killed" on
+the console.  I don't know what the behavior is on MS's implementation (no
+windows), but I would think that it'd eventually throw an exception related
+to infinite recursion.
+Attached is a test case which shows this.
