[racket] Confusion with circular structs
Hi Nick!
Interesting observation. I tried the same thing with immutable hash tables
in place of sets (just mapping each element to #t), and got the same
results. So I don't think the set implementation is the culprit here. I
suspect the built-in equality and/or hash functions for either immutable
hash tables, or transparent structs, or both, doesn't properly handle
circular values.
