Any function in pretty much any (applicable) programming language can cause a stack overflow. A stack overflow means you exceeded the bounds of the memory allocated to your process. Too many variable declarations, unchecked recursive function calls, and too-nested of non-recursive function calls could all cause an SO.

Posting JavaScript questions in the Java TA is not appropriate, and might make your question less likely to be answered. http://technojeeves.com/joomla/index.php/free/127-javascript-is-not-java
