Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Trying to cast a close vote for this question as being duplicate of the question "Maximum size for a SQL Server Query? ..." throws up an error that "This closure would result in the 'duplicate of' navigation only leading in a circle"

How can that be the case? The question was only asked 13 minutes ago? Surely there can't be another question closed as duplicate of that which would complete the circle?

This looks thorny to unpick, but I will disable the check ASAP so that it doesn't cause issues. – Marc Gravell Sep 8 '11 at 13:19
(this is currently disabled; you should be able to vote now) – Marc Gravell Sep 8 '11 at 13:49
Yep. That works now. – Martin Smith Sep 8 '11 at 13:51

I found the cause of this; it relates to some of our older posts (i.e. 2009) where some particulars of dup-voting worked differently. A fix has been applied, and will be deployed in due course. Until it is deployed, this check will be left disabled.
