Bug in 11.0.1 fixed in 11.1.0

Has anyone else noticed this odd function crash with Datasets. Try the following in a clean kernel.

ds = ExampleData[{"Dataset", "Planets"}]


Repeated $RecursionLimit errors.

Have to abort evaluation.


Repeated $RecursionLimit errors.

Have to abort evaluation.

Add a second symbol.

x = 1

Now both ?`* and ??`* complete. However if you select ds the $RecursionLimit errors return and you must abort evaluation.

Version 11.0.1 Win 7 Ent

    $\begingroup$ ?ds is sufficient to trigger the problem. If there are two symbols, ?`* is no longer equivalent to ?ds. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Mar 15 '17 at 17:11
