Normally, OIDs are defined by referencing a single parent OID by name and specifying a child number. In some cases, however, it may necessary to reference a grandparent OID instead due to circular references that might otherwise arise. Mibble currently doesn't handle this gracefully, but ignores or hides the last OID subtree added.

To examplify this, consider the ATM-TC-MIB definition:

atmTCMIB MODULE-IDENTITY ... ::= { mib-2 37 3 }

In reality, this should read:

atmTCMIB MODULE-IDENTITY ... ::= { atmMIB 3 }

Due to the ATM-MIB already importing ATM-TC-MIB, the "atmMIB" symbol cannot be imported.

The resolution to this problem is to modify the ObjectIdentifierValue.initialize() and possibly addChild() methods to detect when two ObjectIdentifierValue object have been created with the same numerical component. In this case one of the two must be selected and all the children from the other must be transferred.
