Pro and Repro were sittin' in a boat... Pro fell out, who was left?

 So, I'm debugging this issue with the tooltips in the Windows common controls.

A particular debugger is crashing when it's trying to display the contents of a particular string in a tooltip.

I am using that particular debugger to debug the crash.  In that debugger, I have a callstack in the tooltips code, and if I hover over variable containing the text that it's trying to display, I get the crash!

If I were to debug that crash, I would get a callstack in the tooltips code, which if I hovered over the variable containing the text...

You get the idea: a recursive repro case!
