Watch nautilus run out of memory and die.  Should I file this bug in

Sure. And you should also fix it. Simplest fix is just a hard-coded limit (50 levels or something like that).

Only problem is that /someday/ somebody will have a legitimate reason for 50 levels of symlinks. I know, it sounds silly, but so did > 640k of memory at one time not that long ago . . . .

I think a better solution would be an intelligent algorithm to detect recursive links.

My shell (bash) simply displays a broken link.  How do they do it?
