Description Zhenya 2013-07-23 10:19:57 UTC
I had a couple of cases of infinite recursion in my code. My application silently crashed every time it hit the infinite recursion. The application would just quit without any error messages or breaking into a debug mode. As the result, it is very hard to diagnose problems like that. Could replicate in debugging mode on an iPad simulator.

We currently do not have plans to address this, it is a condition that is difficult to recover from on the platform.
