In my sense, it should be trapped otherwise, but you are the maintainer,
so you must have set yourself some kind of limitations.

I send an example to show the behavior and to permit you to reproduce the
problem, not the exact context in which this can happen.

I'm a bash expert, it's easy for me to debug this kind of problem, but for
beginners it's not easy (I often see this kind of recursive scheme when
beginners want to separate their .bashrc in pieces for easier maintenance
and do a little mistake in spelling their file to source of forgot that the
second one was effectivly called at another place) and all they got is
"Segmentation fault"...

But you are the maintainer.
