The second composition has a deadlocked feedback loop. I'm not sure why Vuo 1.2.3 doesn't detect it, but our dev version of Vuo does, which is how I noticed. (Bug report: Error not shown for deadlocked feedback loop)

Here's a simplified version of the composition, for which Vuo 1.2.3 does detect an error:

Or, besides the error message in the screenshot, another way of thinking about it is that Vuo can't tell which Hold node is supposed to be the one where the feedback loop starts and ends.
