While looking at bug 44397,


Gnome's volume control somehow wanted to create a filter sink cycle. I'm 
attaching a patch to prevent this, which seems to have worked  (at least 
there is no crash!), but before I push it:

Is there any reason, any use case, where we actually would want a cycle? 
I can't think of any, but just wanted another thought in case I missed
