And you are trying to make issue 100 parent (or child, doesn't matter in this case) of issue 102?

Also (1) check for any issue relations between the issues, and (2) monitor your logs to see if they can provide more info about why this is happening.

Perhaps you are experiencing #13654.

To add to what Pierre is suggesting, I would check to see if the relationship is one of the "copied" relationships because this appears to have been giving me the same issue. I would assume that some relationships such as whether a bug was copied from another should not play into detecting cyclical relationships when assigning a parent/sub tasks but it appears that this may be what is happening at least in Redmine v2.3.1.
