I've seen this on Solaris boxes. What we found was someone recently did a cp -RH H meaning follow symlinks. And the symlink was something like ../ which causes an endless loop.

The hard part is finding it. Somewhere there may be a directory repeated under itself several hundred times. Example:

/home/username/www/test/test/test/test/test/test/test/test/ etc....
