Bug#437323: main-menu: Should print an error instead of segfaulting in case of circular dependencies

Package: main-menu
Version: 1.20
Severity: wishlist


If a udeb has circular dependencies (= bad package control files),
main-menu currently segfaults.

More precisely, di_config_package() calls itself endlessly until
main-menu crashes.  It would be a lot better for everyone's hair if
main-menu could detect such case and print an error message. :)
