Deleting large folder hierarchies via repository APIs is unreliable

      Description

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Create a site
      2. Create a folder in that site's document library
      3. Populate that folder with a large amount of content (I'm testing with ~110,000 files in several hundred sub-folders)
      4. Delete the folder

      Expected result:

      • Folder is deleted.

      Actual result:

      • Various results, including:
      • Silent failure - "Please wait. Files being deleted..." dialog disappears after some time but folder is still visible, even after refreshing
      • Error - "Please wait. Files being deleted..." dialog disappears after some time, replaced with "Could not delete files." dialog.
      • Eventual deletion - after either of the above behaviours, the folder may (in some, but not all cases) eventually disappear from the repository. This is not guaranteed however - sometimes multiple deletions are necessary before the folder is finally deleted.
