We have a comment partial that renders recursively to display child comments.

ie. app/views/comments/_comment.html.erb has the following line:

<%= render partial: 'comments/comment', collection: comment.children %>

While trying to upgrade from rails v3.2.13 to v4.0.0 we're hitting a "Stack Level Too Deep" error, much like the one described in rails/cache_digests#39.

Removing the recursive partial rendering fixes the error (but leaves content off our output).

It only happens if perform caching is enabled in the environment

config.action_controller.perform_caching = true
