The error that max-lisp-eval-depth is exceeded is nearly always an
infinite-recursion problem.  Bisect your init file to try to identify the
culprit code.  

You might need to recompile that code or load it without compiling it.  Or
perhaps (most likely) it is just buggy and needs to be fixed.

But the point is to respond to a max-lisp-eval-depth error by looking for a code
problem, not by increasing that variable value.
