symbolic link cycling

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to know which folders are pointing to each other in a cycle
manner by doing a find or some other command? I have a backup utility (in
windows thru samba) which seems to backup redundant files, probably due to
some symbolic links pointing to each other in cycle. Maybe a shell script
can do the job? I searched on the internet without good results. I hope that
my question is clear. Thanks,
