Perl has a "leak" with circular references. I sort of boggled at your code for a while since it is rather, *ahem* pathological, but in the end I don't think you made a circular construct. You just made a really deep set of nested hashes. I think the whole thing can unwind from the top. The reference you destroy is the lynchpin and once it is pulled each remaining level can fall one by one.
# These are bad, um-kay? my $a; $a = \$a; my ($b,$c); ($b, $c) = \($c, $b); my @d; $d[0]=0; $d[$_]=\$d[$_-1] for (1..100_000); $d[0]=\$d[$#d];
