fake = Arel::Nodes::SqlLiteral.new
fake << "BAR"
fake2 = Arel::Nodes::SqlLiteral.new
fake2 << "FOO"
table = Arel::Table.new("T")
table_alias = Arel::Nodes::TableAlias.new(table, "A")
table.aliases << table_alias
attrib = Arel::Attributes::Attribute.new(table_alias,"B")

p [attrib, fake].hash
p [attrib, fake2].hash


# OH NO 

In normal use in Rails there may be reference loops in Arel::Table an TableAlias, like the above.

This causes #hash in binary node to return dupe hash codes, in turn having a large number of dupe hash codes causes a seriously inefficient #uniq operation that is called in rails.

Simplest fix would be to remove .aliases from the hash to avoid these loops.

Since PR #206 was merged, should this issue be closed?
