Bleah -- but I tested this earlier. It worked...or at least I thought I
was exercising the proper code path; I specifically wanted to make sure
that cyclic dependencies were okay.
I guess my earlier 'test' didn't really *test* what I thought it was
testing...sorry for the trouble, folks.
BUT: the dependency loop NEEDS to be there -- becuase those packages ARE
mutually dependent. It's just that setup needs to traverse the loop
only once and terminate. :-)
