It is possible to have circular dependencies in ACL files.

The following is(correctly) disallowed:
- runtime properties file includes aclfile1
- aclfile1 includes aclfile1

The following, however, is not disallowed:
- runtime properties file includes aclfile1
- aclfile1 includes aclfile2
- aclfile2 includes aclfile1

The exact behaviour should be investigated and the
problem should be resolved.

    This is not a bug.
    This is how the system was/is designed.

    This may become a RFE (Add detection of circular
    dependencies for ACL files).

    I think that it's just a normal behaviour (like you can have
    circular references in functions/methods calls).
