Recursion depth checker doesn't work in tracer.c

Issue #9 resolved
Ned Batchelder repo owner created an issue

From a comment on the coverage page:

It seems that the recursion limit statement does not work when executed in coverage 3.0, like in this sample code:

{{{ #!python

import sys sys.setrecursionlimit(2500) def add1(number = 0): number = number + 1 if(number < 2000):add1(number) if name == 'main': add1() }}}

    The problem isn't setrecusionlimit, it's the depth checker in tracer.c: it's off by one (or two).
