Both RC1 and RC2 of Hive on Windows crashes when there is a wavetable folder circular symlink situation. Suppose there is a symlink in Hive.dataWavetables to Library, and Library has a symlink to Hive.dataWavetables.

Oh, trying to link the whole library location to Hive’s wavetable folder is a really bad idea, this would crash even without the symlink feedback loop, as Hive would have to scan all the stuff in the library, including system folders to which it cannot gain access due to missing permissions.

But in principle, you’re right, creating a symlink feedback loop in the wavetable location will crash Hive. Yet, both those crashes already happen with Hive 2.0.1 (rev. 9709) and Hive 2.1 (rev. 11037).

I’ll create a ticket, maybe we can prevent it from crashing in a future update.
