Summary0004683: ircd becomes unresponsive if operclass parent does not exist (possible infinite loop)
DescriptionOriginally reported by Digerati and I am able to reproduce this issue.
This bug causes the ircd to be unresponsive upon /OPER and CPU usage of almost 100%.
Steps To ReproduceAssign operclass that has non-existing parent to oper block.
Start ircd and oper up.

Example operclass:
operclass kevin {
        parent local;
        privileges {
                tkl { shun; };

    No infinite loop when operclass::parent is not found. Reported by Digerati and dboyz (0004683).
    Should add code in config-tester for this to prevent this in the first place, though..
