Currently RecurisionError is thrown even for sideways links. This change checks for a recursive link versus a duplicate link and handles them differently.

@nhumrich Can you provide an example of a "sideways" link? It's not really clear to me what one is.

Ya sorry, I should be more correct in the words I use. Basically, just any link thats not recursive. But a simple example is:
./foo/bar -> ./foo/baz
Since bar points to baz and baz doesnt contain bar, there is no recursion and everything works ok.
