Which filenames are returned in the "bunch"?

Check the correct directory contents vs the names you can see in the
responses. See if all the names are included or not. Start by checking if 
one of the missing names from the listing is included in the responses.

And yes, you probably want to make a script to verify all names, if you
only can trigger this with 8000 entries.

Yes. Or rather with smbfs.
