Looks like handle_stop is not updating it->stop_charpos, for some
reason.  Could you verify that this is the case?  The GDB command
"pit" will display the important fields of the iterator object,
including stop_charpos.

If this is true, please trace through handle_stop, and see why this
happens.  It has this code near the end:

  /* Determine where to stop next.  */
  if (handled == HANDLED_NORMALLY)
    compute_stop_pos (it);

If compute_stop_pos is never called, it could explain the infinite
recursion, but then we will have to find out why `handled' never gets
set to HANDLED_NORMALLY.

I will be unable to try debugging this myself, at least for the next
few days.  But I can explain the logic behind the
next_element_from_buffer & handle_stop dance, if you don't know that
already.  The idea is quite simple.  Let me know if you need this.

HTH
