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. Commented Sep 8, 2011 at 13:19

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.
