I'm not sure if Jesper modified it, but basicly it was your patch that 
was commited and is currently in use in KPA 3.0.

Yes, there were no checks for any other types of cycles than A-in-A 

So I added code to check for any kind of cycles. That's now commited to 
SVN (trunk and 3.0.x). It's also in the upcoming 3.0.1.

ps. 3.0.1 should be out as soon as Jesper has time to add packages to 
KPhotoAlbum web site. For the impatient, those packages are already at 
my university web area: http://users.utu.fi/thsuut/kphotoalbum/
