      If I were to specify a project with itself as a parent, Maven 2.2.1 gives this response:

      Caused by: org.apache.maven.project.ProjectBuildingException: Parent element is a duplicate of the current project  for project org.apache.maven.its.mng:test

      Maven 3 doesn't detect this circularity immediately; it tries to download the parent by going through my remote repositories. The end result is still a failure since it can't find itself, but it's a regression since the network is accessed for this use case.
