OK understood. I thought we were going to change this entire policy
regarding how we deal with aliases. Then this is no problem at all.
Adding a better check to prevent these cycles will be good. If we
don't do this we might seriously screw up search and the problems
generated will be very interesting if aliasDereferencing is enabled.

I just don't want to take such a step without guaranteeing we're not
going break search handling.
