Summary:Glossary quote not linked after first use


I defined the command `\glsquotation` as you can see in my source code. The command takes the label of a glossary entry and prints the name of the glossary entry and its description. The name should be linked to the glossary and the description shouldn't.

It works fine for the first entry but every entry after the first one doesn't link to the glossary. I made links blue so you can see it easily.

(I've moved this from makeglossaries to glossaries, since it's related to the package rather than the Perl script.)

The problem is the use of nested links, which the glossaries manual warns against. This is a documented feature rather than a bug. You can't use \glsdesc if the description contains commands like \gls or \glslink. However, there's no need for \glsdesc in this context. Just use \glsentrydesc instead.

        \paragraph{\gls{#1}:} \glsentrydesc{#1}.
