Possible infinite loop

I need to see the mapfile to really address the problem. It's possible
that REQUIRES is not being properly used and I'm not catching that
particular case. The function can recurse when trying to detect
relationships between layers, so that's ok.

So Jan, if you would send me the mapfile that would help.

I remember that there was a bug about a similar issue that Steve fixed
just before the 4.4 release:

I don't know if what you ran into is the same problem or or just another
instance of the same thing elsewhere in the code, I guess I'll let Steve
comment on that.
