Hi Richard,

Yes but then some constructs deferring using a transition with Defer and a
guard will deliver some suprising effect like not being called again though
the guard would allow it at say, the 3rd try. Admittedly, this would be a
quite unlikely construct so it could be ignored for the moment (the stack
overflow is clearly worse).
I'll have a look at it.
