I was wondering if this is meant to happen (and it is simply invalid to sync a directory and it's child), or is there another way to sync them without an infinite chain?
Clearly it makes no sense to create infinitely long directory chains (no utilitiy program would correctly do that). It sounds like you're creating things before you determine whether you need to.
