Subject: bug#2801: 23.0.90; ls-lisp-insert-directory:
Variable binding depth exceeds max-specpdl-size



emacs -Q

C-x 4 d, then enter -alFR and the name of a directory that has a few
subdirectory levels. The error message appears after a few seconds.

However, using -alR works fine.

The same bug is in Emacs 22.3.
