better handling of lots of files

Description

Sometimes when I'm downloading an archive, I'll just
add the whole directory by dragging it to the queue
pane.

When I do, filezilla will recursively go through the
directory structure and add each file. Just like it's
supposed to.

But sometimes when a subdir has lots of small files in
it, filezilla will spend so long adding those to the
queue that it seems to lock up. And it'll loose the
ftp connection and be unable to continue traversing
the directory stucture for the rest of the files.

The more that gets added, the slower things go. And
it'll reach a point where filezilla just locks up for
a couple minutes or more and the connection times out
and it wont finish adding the rest of the stuff.

Even though the files being added are small and could
be downloaded pretty quick, by this point, filezilla
is spending more time adding a file to the queue than
it would probably take to just go ahead and download
it.
