An entry in `needed` is the only indication on whether we have already visited a node in the
dependency graph (which is not necessarily a tree).

If you do not add `path` to `needed` before recursing into `collectDependencies`, `path` might
be visited again as a dependency in pathological cases involving cyclic shared library dependencies
(which the loader might be fine with). In such a case this code would recurse indefinitely.

It looks like a fix might be to add `path` to `needed` after you have found that it currently
is not in `needed`, but before you recurse.
