The code you posted at comp.text.xml will really cause infinite recursion.

There is no correct stop condition. 

You test for 
         $rowcount = 2

but there isn't any test for 
        $rowcount = 1

If $rowcount = 1

then you divide it by 2 and get the next two calls with $rowcount = 0
and $rowcount = 1
and this goes on forever.
