Is it worth to continue to look for the problem in w32notify? I would simply
set the loop limit there to 250, that's it.

file-notify-test06-many-events is a stress test. Originally, Wolfgang
Jenkner proposed it with 10.000 iterations - that was *really* much too

As said, it was intended as stress test. But we are free to adapt it to
the limitations of the underlying backend.
