Circular symbolic links not detected - infinite recursion

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: alamaison
Priority: major (affects peripheral workflow) Milestone:
Component: remote folder Version:
Keywords: Cc:


My Linux directory contains a symbolic link like this:

myself -> .

That is, the symbolic link "myself" points back at the current directory. A naive program traversing that link will recurse forever. Swish does not detect this and recurses until it build a path greater than MAX_PATH and then throws an error.
