recursive symlink significantly slows collection #624
placing "ln -s . link" in a collected dir significantly slows down collection. it seems collection doesn't keep track of directories visited to prevent unnecessary recursion?
I actually found a much more amusing result when attempting to reproduce this:
I'm amused it stops after recusing 40 levels without erroring -- I suspect it hits
EDIT: for best effect, I suggest making the terminal wider so you get a nice pyramid
