*****UPDATE***** I just did the latest update to ServerPress and the problem disappeared!

I was following BB on the WDC2013 and I was using my site hosted on my own laptop using Desktop Server.
I added a product and trying to view the product I got this error on the product page:


Fatal Error

The site encountered a problem that it cannot recover from. Please use the following information to try to resolve the problem.
Error Message

Fatal Error: Maximum function nesting level of '100' reached, aborting! in C:\Users\admin\Documents\Websites\test.dev\wp-includes\cache.php on line 453

The WordPress code created an error that caused PHP execution to fail. This typically happens when the WordPress code has been modified.
  • Invalid code modifications can cause this problem. If you have made any modifications to the WordPress core, remove them and try to load the site again.
  • The WordPress core may not have been fully uploaded. This can happen with bad or incomplete upgrades. Uploading the WordPress core files again could fix the issue. You can find details on how to manually update WordPress's files in these instructions.
Error Source Details
Type WordPress core Path C:\Users\admin\Documents\Websites\test.dev/ File C:\Users\admin\Documents\Websites\test.dev\wp-includes\cache.php
Other Software Details
WordPress Version 3.5.2 PHP Version 5.3.1
Full Error Details
Type Fatal Error (E_ERROR) Message Maximum function nesting level of '100' reached, aborting! File C:\Users\admin\Documents\Websites\test.dev\wp-includes\cache.php Line 453 Type Description This type of error indicates that PHP cannot continue to run the code. Typical causes of this type of error are code bugs that have typos, missing or incomplete files (such as a file that was only partially uploaded), and the code using more memory than it is allowed.
Note that this message is generated by iThemes.com products when an error is encountered on the site. While an iThemes product is generating this message, it is not necessarily the cause of the problem.

I can't give you a URL 'Cause the site is host locally on my laptop.
The first time I trid to view the page I had Pods activated. The error message was showing:


Fatal Error

Error Message

Fatal Error: Maximum function nesting level of '100' reached, aborting! in C:\Users\admin\Documents\Websites\test.dev\wp-content\plugins\pods\classes\PodsMeta.php on line 1715

Plus all the rest..........

I then proceeded to disable all the plugins except BackupBuddy. I'm using Builder and Everett child theme (all latest version).

Is this a known bug?

I'm running Win7 64 Pro

The above error was in Chrome in Firefox i got a cleaner looking error and I have taken screenshot of the page when
Pods is activated: http://www.screencast.com/t/o85JteUP
and deactivated: http://www.screencast.com/t/0r5BV35uQBUo

Thanks for your help
