Certain directories show no files

My R6 admin client (on WinXP) is displaying strange behavior. When I request a list of files, for certain directories it shows no files. I know there are databases and templates in the directories, and I have appropriate privilege to the folder and databases in question.

I have changed the file selection (databases only/templates only/all files/all database types/etc.) to no effect. Pressing F9 to refresh has no effect. Restarting the admin client or the server has no effect. Once this happens to a folder, it's consistent between sessions. Do you know of any way I can get back my file lists?
I have never seen this behavior. The one thing I have seen which is similar is that the file list takes a while to populate when there are many, many files. So I have seen part of a file listing, while the rest of the list is still filling in. Is it possible this is what is happening for you?
