It circulated.  You probably have your preferences set so your own messages
don't go back to you.

That is closer, but it is *still* not enough for anybody to replicate your problem
and then solve it.

Leave out most of the packages!

Do not \include files you do not provide.

Shorten the bodsy as much as possible.

Hint: See what there is about a \label command that causes infinite
recursion.  Did you redefine \label?  More likely it is used in a wrong
place, or the tag includes bad characters.
