Create two folders:

/a
/b

Add a symlink to folder a/, which is pointing at folder b/. Add a symlink to folder b/, which is pointing at folder a/.

Now put some mp3s into a/ and b/ and add folder a/ to your ipod. While extracting the files to transfer, gtkpod will hang in an infinite loop always going from folder a/ to folder b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/ and back to b/ and back to a/... :-)
