Interactively, you can safely ignore it ... it is just a warning.
However to define two functions f and g that call each other in
such a way that avoids the warning use DeclareGlobalFunction and
InstallGlobalFunction to define each function like this:
DeclareGlobalFunction( "f" );
DeclareGlobalFunction( "g" );
# that defines f and g to be the names of two functions
# without defining what they do
# code here can refer to g
# code here can refer to f
