I see this error also reported in other issues, but I think the cause is different. Here is my example code:


trait Trait {
    fn method(&self, x: i32) -> i32;

impl<F> Trait for F
    where F: Fn(i32) -> i32
    fn method(&self, x: i32) -> i32 {
        if x > 0 { self(x - 1) } else { 0 }

fn call<T: Trait, F: Fn() -> T>(f: F) -> impl Trait {
    move |x: i32| f().method(x)

fn expr() -> impl Trait {
    // move |x: i32| expr().method(x)

fn main() {
    println!("{:?}", expr().method(2));
rustc 1.17.0-nightly (ea7a6486a 2017-02-04)

thread 'rustc' has overflowed its stack
fatal runtime error: stack overflow

If you uncomment move || expr().method() and comment call(expr) build can success.
