We ran into a problem with Picasa and directory scanning. It looks
like an issue with FindFirstChange/FindNextChange and overlapping
directories, so I'm trying to use shell redirection to avoid the
problem. Perhaps we should fix the problem with
FindFirstChange/FindNextChange rather than avoid it.

I'll resubmit the patches without the shell redirection code.
