Hi, While building a test-suite for a module that crawls directories containing symbolic links, I built a test directory which contains the following structure: root |-- link -> subdir `-- subdir `-- updir -> .. All of a sudden, 'prove -r' started hanging -- it's unable to handle the circular symbolic links, and gets stuck in an infinite loop. I've attached a patch for prove and Test::Harness::Utils.
