Well, an infinite hook recursion still shouldn't make Emacs crash.

The backtrace reminded me a bit about the known gc recursion bug that I
can't remember the recipe for right now -- it was something about if you
(setcar foo foo), then Emacs will segfault when trying to gc?  I forget
the details, but it's in the debbugs somewhere.  :-)
