#929 gphoto -L fails to list files

gphoto2 (75)

I am using gphoto 2.4.14 on arch linux.

Running \'gphoto -L \' with a Canon 500D attached, I get the following output:

x201 ~ :: gphoto2 -L
There is no file in folder \'/\'.
There is no file in folder \'/store_00020001\'.
There is no file in folder \'/store_00020001/DCIM\'.
*** Error (-8: \'Fixed limit exceeded\') ***

For debugging messages, please use the --debug option.
Debugging messages may help finding a solution to your problem.
If you intend to send any error or debug messages to the gphoto
developer mailing list <gphoto-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>, please run
gphoto2 as follows:

env LANG=C gphoto2 --debug --debug-logfile=my-logfile.txt -L

Please make sure there is sufficient quoting around the arguments.

The debug-output can be found here

    yozu have more than 1024 images in one folder, which was not yet supported by 2.4.14.

    0.460906 gphoto2-list(0): gp_list_append: Tried to add more than 1024 entries to the list, reporting error.

    (you have 1063 I think judging from:
    0.453590 ptp2/eos_directory(2): read 1063 entries

    libgphoto2 2.5.0 has been released some months ago that gets rid of this arbitrary limit (but is binary incompatible).
