I've got a ton of custom modules set up. I think there's two things you
have going on. First is that the module has the same name as another in

always put my excludes last..

Try changing this:

playground -a !playground/rtest playground

To this:

newPlayground -a playground !playground/rtest

I have several modules set up just like the above and they work just

Thanks. The pattern I used came from Cederqvist (C.1.4). It works fine except when the module name is the same as the top-level directory name; then the 'infinite loop' error occurs. I tried switching the order as you suggested and I get the same results; it throws an infinite loop when the module 'playground' has the same name as the top-level directory 'playground'

Our basic problem is that we want to check out the 'playground' module and have the resulting directory be named 'playground', but with specific sub-directories excluded. (We also want only a single top-level directory in the repository, which precludes simply moving the unwanted directories elsewhere.) Only alias modules support excluding sub-directories, but they don't support renaming.

The module combination I tried was an attempt to include both sub-directory exclusion and directory renaming in a single module name:

playground_full -d playground playground
playground -a !playground/rtest playground_full

It worked fine until we tried checking out something that didn't exist, at which point it checked out the entire top-level directory hierarchy when I expected that it would have reported an error.
