FS#9924 - "Most Played" and "Recently Played" display "dir buffer full!" in the database

When I access History>Most Played; or History>Recently Played, a small box comes up saying something like “2462 files found” and then once it gets near 6000-7000, I get the error “dir buffer full!”

After I’ve reinitialized the database, those entries are accessible again. However, because it’s a new database, they’re empty. When I “Import changes” from the previous database, the problem occurs again. I’ve included the exported database file, in the hopes that someone can take a look at it and find where the problem may be, and perhaps what caused it.

I’m using revision 20032, but I know it didn’t work in 20002 or quite a few previous ones. While I’d say it’s probably likely that there’s corruption somewhere, what I’m wondering is what caused that corruption, and can it be found/fixed? Hopefully the included file will be useful to that end.

Increase "Max entries in File Browser" to solve the issue.

This is linked to the “Max entries in directory browser” settings. If you ask for a history of about 7000 files and your “Max entries…” setting is lower than that, then it will give up with this error.
I know it’s written nowhere but at least there is a solution to this problem: increase the setting.
