Description paul 2011-01-15 22:32:43 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.95) 
OS:                Linux

For some reasons I had to create a "symlink loop" in my home directory:

~/progs/linux links to ~/progs

This causes dolphin to search in an endless loop.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a looping symlink like the one above.



I think there has to be an additional control step to check whether the given directory was already visited.

The cause of this bug is definitely annoying - who ever assumes something like that!?
