Yes, nautilus has this issue. I think someone had found a way to fix it though.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-10-18 12:57:24 EDT
Still there in 8.0
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-05-27 08:33:57 EDT
This can be fixed by changing the /apps/nautilus/preferences/directory_limit key
in gconf to the maximum you want, or -1 to disable it.
In future nautilus releases this will be -1 by default.
