      Description

      Nexus 3 allows creation of roles that contain circular references. This causes a stack overflow in outreach code if a user with one of these roles attempts to view the welcome screen. It very likely causes other problems as well.

      Note that Nexus 2.x does not allow creation of roles with circular references, the user will receive an error in the UI if they attempt to do so.
