There are many implementation that doesn't follow the spec strictly. And
when I tested in past, Windows also allowed to read the directory beyond
that limit. I can't recall though if there is in real case or just test
case though.

So if there is no strong reason to apply the limit, I don't think it is
good to limit it. (btw, the current code should detect the corruption of
infinite loop already)

Thanks.
