      The KIM UI screen for roles, lets you add a role to itself. This causes client apps using the role to go into a loop and finally go down. There seems to have been an attempt to fix this in https://jira.kuali.org/browse/KULRICE-4152 but it is not working currently. This should be fixed at the UI and code level. This should not just prevent roles from being added to itself but should detect all kinds of recursion issues like
      1. Recursion arising from Group that has a role being assigned to the same role.
      2. Recursion arising from roles A and B where B is a member of A, but then A is also a member of B
      3. Recursion indirectly arising from roles A, B, and C where B is a member of A, C is a member of B, and A is a member of C
