Problem with directories named "#00 - Description", "#01 - Description", &c.
Going into directory "#00 - Description" shows again parent directory, this goes to infinity.
"./#00 - Description/#00 - Description/#00 - Description/#00 - Description/&c."

The hashtag seems to be the problem. Renaming the directory without hashtag reveals true content. Unfortunately I have many directories starting with hashtag.
