Or an even more pathological case where nets are fused in 
a circle...

I'd say, take whatever comes first and issue a warning during
netlist. DRC might check for this ambiguity, too. The designer
is responsible to use the netfuse symbols in a way that yields
a non-ambiguous winner.

Anyway, it most likely won't be detrimental to the following tools.
After all, netnames are just that: names. A back-end might need 
fixed net names for special purposes. But since this would be a 
corner case of a corner case, a warning should be ok.
