I couldn't find a definitive quote either way. Mostly just quotes in the books, and from interviews saying Far Madding basically duplicated what the stedding did with the OP.

That said, here's the best quote I could find on the matter.

Quote:
Originally Posted by The Gathering Storm, Chapter 44
"I've heard of this place," Naeff said, riding up, close-cropped, dark brown hair ruffling in the wind. He narrowed his eyes, rectangular face dissatisfied. "It's like a stedding, only not as safe." Far Madding's massive ter'angreal—known as the Guardian—created invisible protective bubbles that blocked people from touching the One Power. That could be worked around through the use of a very specialized ter'angreal, one of which Nynaeve happened to be wearing. But it would help only slightly. The army looked close enough to be within the bubble that prevented men from channeling, which extended about a mile out around the city.
Now, that's not very conclusive, but it at least implies that the reason Far Madding is not as safe, is because Far Madding can be worked around with a well. On the other hand, how would Nynaeve know?

For the moment, I'm leaning towards your call of it not being possible, but the evidence is far from conclusive.

With the course all the characters are on right now, I guess it doesnt really matter, unless it starts to matter in the series. And if that happens, we will have the definitive answer.

Might be worth bringing up in a Q&A, though.

*looks pointedly at the people who actually talk to Sanderson*

Would a circle be broken by entering Far Madding or a stedding?
Brandon Sanderson
75% chance of no. It would be like using a Well and entering those locations (which would work)

Good call. I was looking through the interviews, and I couldn't find it. Only vague things comparing them. Thanks for the reference.

Default thank you

I had been wondering about the Gardeners, if there were steddings in Seanchan and if they suffered the Longing. This has been answered for me. Thanks guys..
