I might even add (sorry for spamming) that the number of folders seen
highly depends on actions such as creating a new sub-folder :
- as mentioned, creating a "test" folder increases the number of
folders seen to 548 ; deleting it brings back the counter to 411,
- creating a new folder "test" with Vista brings down the counter to 135,
- if I move all the folders in a new sub-folder, Vista now sees n - 1
of them. Moving them back brings the number of folders seen to what it was.
That seems to be highly irrational... I tried to set a high debug level,
but accessing and refreshing the folder does not seem to trigger any
log. I also tried to deinstall and reinstall samba then reboot the
server, but that didn't change anything.
Thanks in advance for any help!
