_pad_term_count get's stuck if there is a loop in the hierarchy

Ideally it should be impossible for a loop in a taxonomy hierarchy to exist.
But sometimes they do.
If one does exist then _pad_term_counts() gets stuck :(
When one of these does exist the category widget breaks the front page of your site.
We currently hook wp_check_term_hierarchy_for_loops on wp_update_term_parent and I wonder if there are other places we should be doing this check too.
