Actually, I doubt this is a Windows issue. As Antoine pointed out, the
number of folders displayed changed after a Samba update, why would
this effect Windows Explorer limits?

Anyway, I just tested this on both Gentoo/Samba 3.0.32 and CentOS
5/Samba 3.2.3 with 1100 subfolders and WinXP 32bit / Vista 32bit
clients, and both had no problem displaying all folders.
