Allocating most memory during initialization, based on configuration parameters, is good practice in servers.

I worked on telephone switches and never wrote anything recursive. But I did write some interesting code in which function #1 invoked function #2, which in turn invoked function #1.

A former boss wrote the code for call waiting. When one of the calls needed something done on the other call, it sent a message. After several releases the code stumbled into an obscure path where the two calls just kept exchanging messages, creating an overload situation. Although there was code to guard against one call getting into an infinite loop, this hadn't been anticipated. When the code was fixed, defensive code was also added to guard against any one call using an unbecoming percentage of the CPU time.
