Sorry for late replay. It was very nice weekend for me :)

I rebase and recompile my version of DRLVM. And I can't reproduce it too.

On my previous version some magic was required to reproduce it. I added

several variables into main functions and into function "func". This "magic"

 was different for different build and should be tuned after a small changes

in VM code. Now I can't reproduce it using this magic.

Yes it's 1/4 of the stack. But in my test current implementation provide
with depth = 704220. Is more deep reqursion required anywhere? I think its
unlikely .

In any case if more deep recursion will be required in the future, we can
tune thread
stack size for windows build.
