What's the ido message [Too big] all about?
M-x apropos-value, or a simple grep of ido.el, will take you to
C-h v ido-decorations, whose doc contains:

 10th element is displayed when directory exceeds `ido-max-directory-size'.

[Too big directory]?



But it seems to default to 30000, at least in Emacs ver. 22.1 . But this doesn't seem to refer to the number of files but something else. Here is defcustom from ido.el:

(defcustom ido-max-directory-size 30000
  "*Maximum size (in bytes) for directories to use ido completion.
If you enter a directory with a size larger than this size, ido will
not provide the normal completion.  To show the completions, use C-a."
  :type '(choice (const :tag "No limit" nil)
                 (integer :tag "Size in bytes" 30000))
  :group 'ido)

So there is a "No limit" option.
