But your function is recursive, which is usually the cause of these 
memory problems.  Recursive functions will gradually gnaw away at system 
resources/application heap/whatever-your-OS-calls-it with each nesting. 
OSes with dynamic memory allocation for applications (not the Mac) will 
go longer before running into out-of-memory errors.
