A couple weeks back I was on here voicing my rage after I discovered that you people had placed a limit on the number of files my FTP client can view in a folder of just 10,000. See Copy Folder Does Not Copy All Images

Today I found out that the limit is back down to 10,000 again. I know I didn't change the limit so how the hell did that happen and how do I prohibit your software from ever doing it again?

While you guys are busy figuring out why this happened and how to prevent it from ever happening again (which I doubt you'll do), I will be re-learning how to change the recursion limit since like a lot of people I forget stuff like that after a couple weeks.
