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.
