So, in a bit of haste, I ran my scene with

#declare Inverse = function (x, y, z, R, S) {log( 1-Inverse(x,y,z,R,S) )}

which of course calls itself, and POV-Ray issued a warning and stopped, but it
also became unresponsive and gave me this in the terminal window

*** Error in `qtpovray': realloc(): invalid old size: 0x00007f580801dcd0 ***
*** Error in `qtpovray': malloc(): memory corruption: 0x00007f580801d420 ***

Just throwing that out there.
