Here's a new revision of this patch based on Erik Huelsmann
wish. Sorry for not following up on his post. I accidently deleted

The detection simply adds the groups it encounters to a hash
'checked_groups'. If a group exist in the hash it doesn't
recurse. This version does not change callers which the
previous patch did.

Revised log message (suggestion):

* subversion/mod_authz_svn/mod_authz_svn.c
  (group_contains_user, group_contains_user_check): Split up into two
  functions. A hash for the circular dependency check is created in
  group_contains_user() and passed to group_contains_user_check(). The
  _check() function now does the actual check and recurses if it
  encounters a group.
