I'm not really sure those are bugs anyway. Portage 2.1.1 (stable) doesn't 
handle cyclic deps too well. Portage 2.1.2 (~arch) does, however, detect 
cyclic deps. It still doesn't circumvent them but it does make it a lot 
easier to find out how to work around it (usually by temporarily disabling a 
use flag). Portage 2.1.2 will go stable soon..
