RecursionError: maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object

I’m seeing this new error with ray==1.12. The same code worked fine in 1.11

RecursionError: maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object

Hey @Nitin_Pasumarthy, this is quite odd and I have never seen this before. Do you mind sharing a simple reproducible script? Thanks!
