It's crashing because it's a stack overflow.  A recursive call will
never result in an infinite loop, because each call to itself pushes a
new stack frame onto the stack.  Eventually (well, quite quickly in
fact!), the stack will fill up and you'll get a stack overflow

(which is what I get, when I execute your program on my system)
