Sort of, yes, but since you meanwhile redeclared the function:

def print_time():
   print_time()

to be recursive and then you ran that recursive function
it recursed until it ran out of resources.

However,

That would prove that the code itself is not
the reason why it hangs where you think it
hangs.

I suggest sprinkling print statements about the initial code
and see what it prints to the console to find out where
(and whether) it actually hangs.
