double posting since I sent the email only to Leo.

That seems to be a result of converting `global-eldoc-mode' to use
`define-globalized-minor-mode' in 2349f. The recursive call seems to be
a result of the following sequence of calls:

1. python-mode is enabled which adds an eldoc-mode-hook
2. eldoc-mode is turned on in the buffer triggering python's
3. python-mode hook will start an inferior process which in turn trigger
4. ,MODE-enable-in-buffers will go over the list again trying to enable

The problem is in step 4. The eldoc-global-mode buffer list isn't reset
in step 2. Step 4 will try to enabe the mode for the same buffer and
start a sequence of calls at 2. I was able to fix this problem by
setting the buffer-list to nil inside ,MODE-enable-in-buffers. I
attached a patch below.

Subject: [PATCH] avoid turning on the global-minor-mode recursively

* lisp/emacs-lisp/easy-mmode.el (define-globalized-minor-mode): reset
  the buffer-list inside ,MODE-enable-in-buffers to avoid enabling the
  mode recursively
