    Sneaky, I overlooked that.

    Ok, maybe this is related. You recurse if the parent isn't in RPM_ACTIVE.
    But that is not enough. You must ensure that all the nodes higher up stay
    in RPM_ACTIVE. It seems to me that you must go up until you find an
    active node (or the root) and put it a blocked state.
