Directory size/max files in index.

Hi,
One of my colleagues claims there is an issue with Windows Indexing in that there is a maximum directory/project size (of around 2000 files, he claims). Above this figure, files added are not indexed and hence are not returned in PDM searches. He also claims that as time passes and files are added or removed, they unpredictably fall out of the index or are suddenly included.
Before I write a program to create a large batch of files, for bulk check-in, to test this claim, please, does anyone know if he's right? His evidence seems a little anecdotal and the claim is quite difficult to substantiate.

Thanks for your help.
