+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Write a recursive method that has some meat inside the recursion (flow
+control, variable assignment, etc.). Write some code so that the

+3. Run the program on Mono, the runtime will not throw the exception, but
+will merely exit unexpectedly.
+No exception thrown
+System.StackOverflowException (not sure of spelling)
+How often does this happen?
