Right, it's pretty clearly a problem with our circular dependencies. We

buildlist by manually breaking some of the dependencies, and I think we can
remove a few of the actual dependencies easily as well.

Ok, I'll try and get one filled in this afternoon.

I'd love to, but realistically it's unlikely. I'll see what I can do, I'll
definitely file a JIRA.

Thanks for the reply!
