Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2009-08-24 17:55:10 UTC
Looks like you have some kind of symlink loop or similar in your source tree. Anyone else able to reproduce?
Comment 2 Quality Engineering 2009-08-25 07:36:50 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200908250351* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: Diagnostics for #170823.
Comment 3 t_h 2009-08-25 16:18:14 UTC
The diagnostic message reveals: "#170823: possible loop in platform10/modules/modules/modules/modules/modules/modules/..."
In fact there was no loop but somehow a very deep directory hierarchy was created (over 1700 modules directory was
created). Probably somehow created during build and all subsequent builds were failing. It was rather complicated to
delete such directory (directory was valid but most commands and programs were unable to access it or delete it). Thanks
for help, feel free to close the issue. I have no idea how it was created, but after removal next build was finished
without any problem.
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2009-08-25 16:44:48 UTC
OK. Obviously if you find out what created it, that would be a separate bug.
