Subject In-perfect error :)

If you have a configuration eg:
<conf name="x" />

And by mistake you extend itself:
<conf name="x" extends="x" />

Ivy doesn't tell you its illegal to extend yourself but tries to do this
and ends up with a stack overflow error.

For purposes of tracking this down a nice error saying you cannot extend
in a circular fashion would be nice.

I found this error very quickly but I can imagine it being non-obvious
esp if you have x->y->z->a->z on multiple lines of xml.

Is this a known problem?

Many thanks,
