[Q] CIFS mounts randomly missing files?

Hi All,
I am currently using Leedroid 2.3d for the HTC Desire.
I started to use CIFS manager to mount my Windows 7 share folders on the phone, I noticed a bug when mounting shares using CIFS manager, if the share folder contains 200+ files, the mounted share will not display all the files in the share. This can be seen using any Android file manager and looking into the mounted folder on the phone e.g. ES File Explorer, Astro, etc...

I've noticed this for a while now, not sure if this is a Leedroid ROM issue or an issue with CIFS.
I'm just putting this out there to see if anybody else has noticed this with other roms using CIFS shares.

For testing purposes I wrote a little VB script that will generate 200 files in sequence into the folder the script is executed from, if anyone wants to see if they can reproduce this issue.
Script is attached.
