We have several folders in our Shared Documents library that have over 100 documents. When initially opening these folders, the library shows that are less than 60 documents in the folder. In order to see all of the documents in the folder, we have to press the "Next Page" button to get to the second page (we still have the 30 item per page default set), press the "Previous Page" button to navigate back to the initial 30 items in the folder then press the "Next Page" button again. At that point we can see all of the documents in the folder. This issue is also happening in the MS SharePoint Workspace software on the desktop.

Looking through the library settings, I have been unable to find any setting that might be causing this. I tried to increase the Item Limit to 60, but that did not correct the issue. Has anyone seen this behavior before and/or have any advice as to how to resolve it?
