Description ZAN DoYe 2014-12-10 07:20:39 UTC
let rec a ()= printfn "%d" 1; b ()
and b ()= a ()
let ()= a ()

compiled with fsharp
The 3 lines program above causes stack overflow.
If I replace `"%d" 1' with `"1"', the program just keep running properly.

Seems to be caused by missing tail call optimization.
Comment 2 Zoltan Varga 2014-12-11 15:40:19 UTC
Fixed in mono master ca0dd5c0bb0f600331aac3c6b8d0579e37cdd0c7.

Reverted the fix as it causes a perf regression.
