Binary package hint: nautilus

Attempts to access a folder on a FreeNAS CFIS/SMB share via Ubuntu 9.10
Nautilus that contains more than 627 files results in: The folder
contents could not be be displayed (Invalid argument) and inability to
view folder contents.

Test Case:
**************************
1.  On local hard disk, create two folders ("temp627" and "temp628") containing 627 and 628 files respectively.
File names in temp627 were xaaa, xaab, xaac, ... xayc
File names in temp628 were xaaa, xaab, xaac, ... xayd
Each file contained a single "x" character (files generated using "split" command though this is likely irrelevant).  Note that contents of both of these folders may be accessed without issue using Nautilus while they reside on the local hard disk.

2.  Start Nautilus via menu (i.e.,
<Places><Network><Server><Share><folder>). Sequentially, copy temp627
and temp628 from local hard disk and paste to the share (in Nautilus
view).

3.  Double-clicking on "temp627" on the CFIS/SMB share in Nautilus
results in the folder opening and contents accessible, but double-
clicking on "temp628" on the CFIS/SMB share in Nautilus results in the
folder contents cannot be be displayed (Invalid argument) message and
contents not accessible.

4.  This behavior was repeated on multiple shares and in multiple folder locations.  NOTE:  Utilizing a Windows XP system, I CAN access both folders on the share without issue and all of the files are present.
**************************

This test case was more than just a curiosity -- I have several folders
with many (~10,000) files on the share and would like to be able to
access via Ubuntu.  Is this a known limitation or bug?  Does anyone have
any suggestions that would resolve this limit?  Is there some other way
I might access these files via Ubuntu?
