    Is this in the desktop app? We were seeing an issue like kthis reported in the desktop app. 

    If so, would you mind updating the new desktop app, released yesterday, and see if it is fixed?

    This seems to happen when you duplicate a mirror (which contains items)? The duplicated item will error out if you enter/expand/collapse it, after it's created. 

    You can fix the "blank page" by disabling anything mirror related in settings and then also disable the LABS plugin afterwards. This should invalidate items which are mirrors, allowing you to delete them. Do it on a device/browser/app that hasn't encountered the error yet. Navigate to a safe mirror and make sure it is invalidated before navigating to the parent of the mirror which is causing the error.

    how to reproduce: 

    1. create an item (A).

    2. add a child item (B) under that item (A)

    3. use (( to create a mirror (C) out of item A. (on the same level as A)

    4. Duplicate that newly created mirror (C)

    5. Now either enter or expand that duplicated item

    Seems like you guys have a case of wanting to do "infinite fractal cool stuff" but not understanding recursion. This issue stems because the user creates an edge case in recursion without that edge case being handled. 

     

    Is a duplicate of a mirror of an original, just another mirror or is it a duplicate of a mirror? In this case it seems like it's trying to do both and your framework doesn't know how to interpret the meta data.
