[Bf-committers] Python recursive search hangs blender

Hi Willian,

I've had the python path on "//", as many paths in Blender set default.  
This causes Blender to recursively search my entire filesystem and  
network.... which is equal to a hang!
Using path "/" does same.

This functionality is dangerous! You'll have to add some security check  
to find out if such a recursive system search is even useful. :)
Also add a limitor for search depth or so...
