Subject [jira] (MSHADE-148) Shade Plugin gets stuck in infinite loop building dependency reduced POM

             Summary: Shade Plugin gets stuck in infinite loop building dependency reduced
                 Key: MSHADE-148
             Project: Maven 2.x Shade Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.1
         Environment: OS X 10.7.5
            Reporter: Rob Vesse
         Attachments: pom.xml, shade-bug.txt

I have encountered a bug whereby the shade plugin gets stuck in an infinite loop in the step
of creating a dependency reduced POM.

I have attached a minimal POM that reproduces the issue and done some debugging on this. 
The problem seems to be caused by using both the jar and test-jar version of a dependency
(jena-fuseki in my example) while also including a jar dependency that is a transitive dependency
of the other dependencies (jena-arq in my example).   Removing either the jar/test-jar resolves
the problem and so does removing the other jar dependency.

The problem appears to be that the plugin is getting stuck endlessly trying to produce the

If I watch the file over time it is repeatedly deleted and rewritten, each time it is written
it gets larger.  When I manage to kill the process at a point where the file is non-empty
I can see that the plugin is endlessly adding the same set of <exclusions> to one of
the jena-fuseki dependencies.
