This is one of the exceptions which is easy to debug and fix. Practically, it hardly can be anything but "infinite" recursion or mutual recursion. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recursion[^],

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_recursion[^].

The key technique to discovering the problem: Debugger window "Call stack". I guess you can understand why. Use it to see where the call comes from. You need to detect the place in the code which is executing again and again. Corresponding debugging techniques are so practically important that you certainly need to master them, because without such skills it's impossible to do real programming.
