I've not seen a limit. I've got over 13000 files on my server and it
sees them all... with a few exceptions.
I had a similar problem and I narrowed it down to a few files that would
cause the SQL insert to 'hang'. I've not looked closely yet to see why
they stopped the import, but I'm guessing it's a bad ID3 tag. I'm going
to rewrite it and try the import again when I find the time.
Try running the frontend with SQL verbose turned on and see which file
it's stopping on. Move them, try again.
