A coworker of mine got bit by this bug on and off for the last few weeks and it appears he might not
be the only one as documented in this blog:

If python needs to be compiled with HUGE_STACK_SIZE on FreeBSD, is there a reason
to provide the option to not compile python with it, or at the very least, should it default to
being on?

I'm not a python guy, so I am just asking in case what is in the blog post is true.
