This domain is no longer have CNAME refer to itself, but I've just created
cname-cycle.sevcom.net domain, so this bug can be reproduced using it:

$ erl -name test
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.4.6 [source] [hipe]

Eshell V5.4.6  (abort with ^G)
()1> inet_res:getbyname("cname-cycle.sevcom.net", a). 
(CRASH)

$ host cname-cycle.sevcom.net
cname-cycle.sevcom.net is an alias for cname-cycle.sevcom.net.
