      Description

      If a project contains a recursive symlink the behavior is undefined. My sample test "stop" after 40 recursions but some users also reported java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded (probably because memory is filled before reaching the limit).
      We should try to improve user experience. Maybe detect loop and fail/ignore folder with clear message. Note that detecting loop can be expensive.
