Bug #16250: IRB can't print recursive Arrays or Hashes
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16250#change-82025

* Author: the-asterite (Ary Borenszweig)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.7.0dev (2019-06-04 trunk 4b7213a85a) [x86_64-darwin18]
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
This is on Ruby 2.7.0dev but I'm almost sure it happens on master because this code has no check for recursion: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/c3a626030235c0349e14c6bc07177810daee841c/lib/irb/color.rb#L73-L88

Code to reproduce:

~~~
$ irb
irb(main):001:0> a = []
=> []
irb(main):002:0> a << a
Traceback (most recent call last):

SystemStackError (stack level too deep)
Maybe IRB bug!

Suggested fix: keep a list of visited arrays and hashes. I will try to submit a patch.
