I was doing some recursive data structure work and ended up with a cyclical
promise that did not use a direct self reference. It can be reduced down to:
var af, a = new Promise(f=>af=f);
var bf, b = new Promise(f=>bf=f);
af(b);bf(a); // the problem
a.then(_=>_) // some env/libs need this to start checking status
According to https://tc39.github.io/ecma262/#sec-promise-resolve-functions
it looks like this should cause a recursive and infinite set of
This code currently does strange things in stable browsers, but doesn't
seem to always cause infinite loops in the nightly builds of some things. I
was wondering what the expected behavior is here because I am having
trouble making sense of things.
