1. It's a bug because the result depends on the number of
connected outputs. It shouldn't - the input should just be
the sum of everything connected to it.

2. It could be the user who 'wants' the loopback, not the app
itself, and you can't expect apps to check or even count the
signals connected to their inputs.
