I ran into an [issue](php-enqueue/enqueue-dev#774) in the enqueue library which copied this part of code from Symfony. I'm now starting to understand what the problem is and it should most likely be fixed in Symfony as well.

I didn't actually run into it in Symfony itself but it seems at least hypothetically possible. Imagine if [here]( `$e` is somehow the same (===) as `$exception`. The code [below]( will then find the last exception in the `getPrevious()` chain and assigns `$exception` as the previous. However in the off chance that `$exception` is actually `$e` (the first exception in the chain) then it creates an infinite loop of exceptions which is not good for monolog and exception handlers.

What do you think?
