Did you ever find a solution?
I have got "circular file references are not allowed" when I try to deploy a project using the VS2005 Web Deployment Projects BETA. The webapp compiles fine in VS but when I depliy I get a this error message.

This is puzzling. Could you please enter an MSDN feedback bug at
http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/productfeedback/ and submit a zip containing your web site (if possible) or at least the master page and a page or two that uses it? This will allow us to officially track the issue internally.

sdj0103, where is your usercontrol defined? I think it's likely that you have some pages at application root that references this usercontrol in a separate folder, and that usercontrol references the masterpage in the root folder, therefore this causes the
If this is the reason, you should consider moving masterpage file to a different folder than the root or usercontrol. Thus the pages and usercontrol can both depend on the masterpage batch assemblies without the circular reference.
If this does not solve your problem, could you send me your repro files so I can investigate?

Our user controls are a couple of directories in (/xxxproj/UserControls/) from the root. The masterpage was in the root, but by your advice I moved it over to a new directory. I changed all references (563 occurrences) to the new location and still have
the same circular reference error when I build with batch=true. The error points to user controls with the directive:
Our project is enormous, so sending the solution isn't an option. There's probably something we're not seeing that has not been identified as an issue...we'll get there.

I still recommend you enter an MSDN feedback bug and include your current folder structure, a sample user control and the master page. This will allow us to review it with the whole team (including Ting) and track it officially.
