C stack overflow in print_preprocess

Start Emacs with --no-init-file --no-site-file.
Evaluate the following expressions in the *scratch* buffer:

(setq print-circle nil
      print-gensym t)

This causes a segmentation fault.  GDB shows that
print_preprocess has been calling itself thousands of times.
It has apparently been scanning the structure for uninterned
symbols, to satisfy print-gensym; but because print-circle is
nil, it has not bothered checking for recursive conses.  This
goes against the documentation of print-circle, which implies
printing a circular structure could only cause a Lisp error.
