	It was un-hard coded by me for Sun for 2.0 - so if you go poking with
GConf editor to:


	You can tweak 'directory_limit' mine says 4000 currently; You can also
set it to '-1' == no limit. However - be warned, that nautilus does use
a fairly significant amount of memory for 4000 thumbnailed images - it
caches all of the images [ things could be done more intelligently there
but ... it's all effort ], so it's perhaps not altogether wise to have
no limit.
