Description Vladimir Kvashin 2016-12-01 14:00:07 UTC
While investigating stack overflow issue 268918 I found that the following situation leads to UI freezes and stack overflows:
#ln -s . cyclic_link1
#ln -s . cyclic_link2
Cyclic links protection does not work for such case.
It also won't work for other less trivial cases.
