When does recursion limit bite you?

Funny that this comes up at this moment - I've been trying to work with a
'Directory Walker' recursive script (thanks Scott Rossi) and really can't
make it very useful, I keep raising the recursionlimit to millions, but it
eventually will crash on more dense stacks. I included a visible counter to
keep track of iterations, but they only go into the thousands, not millions
This is using Scott's walker from 2002, and the only modification was a test
for file suffix to get a list of certain files by file types.
Mark, you say that there's a bug in the IDE that makes this worse? Does that
mean 'walkers' work properly in a standalone?
Another question is - is there another, non-recursive way to walk all
folders? Some kind of two-pass method? Or is this just the way it is?
