Well, it's not clear if you can match these independently, but if you
could this would be "only"

Which in my mind would take some time. Even just 120*15*152 gives 273,600
pages. To index the latter in 9 hours would require indexing an average of
30,400 pages in an hour or better than 8 pages a second. (!)

OK. But I don't see how this would necessarily lead to an infinite loop.
If you see that the indexing is generating two URLs that lead to the same
page, e.g.:


To htdig, these are different, but these are probably the same to your
code. But from your description, you haven't given any sense that this is
happening, just that this seems to be taking longer than you expect.
