Tail Recursive Call != Recursive function call

These days I always think about the F# continuation and about the people blame recursive call. Is that true all the recursive call will generate the stack overflow? The answer is NO. The stack-overflow only happens when the parent call is waiting for the return value from the child invoke. If the recursive function does not return anything, there is no stack-overflow at all.

You have to use 64-bit compiler to make this happen; 32-bit does not work.
