Public bug reported:

Hello; debsums runs in an (apparently infinite) loop when it encounters
circular symlinks:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 Feb  9  2016 /usr/share/doc/manpages-
posix/changelog.Debian.gz -> ../manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz


readlink("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
"../manpages-posix/changelog.Debi"..., 4095) = 37
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, 
...}) = 0
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
{st_mode=S_IFLNK|0777, st_size=37, ...}) = 0
readlink("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
"../manpages-posix/changelog.Debi"..., 4095) = 37
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, 
...}) = 0
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
{st_mode=S_IFLNK|0777, st_size=37, ...}) = 0
readlink("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
"../manpages-posix/changelog.Debi"..., 4095) = 37
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, 
...}) = 0
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
{st_mode=S_IFLNK|0777, st_size=37, ...}) = 0
readlink("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
"../manpages-posix/changelog.Debi"..., 4095) = 37
lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096,

lstat("/usr/share/doc/manpages-posix/changelog.Debian.gz", 
{st_mode=S_IFLNK|0777, st_size=37, ...}) = 0
