             Summary: Using symlinks pointing to the same directory creates an 
infinite recursive scan
                 Key: NETBEANS-809
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cnd - Editor
    Affects Versions: 8.2
            Reporter: Brya Rice
         Attachments: messages.log.1

Having a Symlink pointing to the same directory where the symlink is located 
creates an infinite recursive code scan. 


www/docroot <- original folder

www/docroot/chicago <- symlink to .

www/docroot/bayarea <- symlink to .


Drupal in particular requires this kind of structure

When a symlink like this is created while NetBeans is open, there is a short 
window to try to use UI to add the symlink to the ignored folders, however the 
IDE will most of the time become irresponsive within 10 sec.
