Deleting directories with more than XXXX files

Current implementation of recursive directories delete does not allow for over-populated directories (i.e. directories containing more files than the server's listing output limit).

Proposed solution: implement a 'thorough delete' right-click command on directories which would:
1) execute a delete as currently implemented
2) check whether rmdir command was successful
3) if not, go back to step 1

Server listing output limit is a bug in the server. Server needs to be fixed. Failure to delete directories is just symptom of such a broken server, there are many other things that fail on these broken servers, e.g. resuming transfers, or overwrite prompts.
