This is not a circular reference, its merely a multiple reference

I may have run into something like this when using the module, we should look deeper to see what needs to be fixed. Indeed the code above should not throw an error IMHO.

Its a flaw in the cycle checking code. Its simply checking if its seen the object before, regardless of whether that object is parent or not

Any chance we can bump the version number and publish to npm?


tagged an published, let me know if you have problems.
