this behavior is certainly not intended. I have not encountered this use
case so far but it seems perfectly reasonable. The recursion check is
too rigid now and should be improved to cover this case. Do you happen
to have a suggestion of how to implement it more accurately without
becoming overly complex?

As an interim solution, you may remove the check locally for you.
