Yes, nautilus has this issue. I think someone had found a way to fix it though.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-10-18 16:57:24 UTC
Still there in 8.0

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-05-27 12:33:57 UTC
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.
