Indexing multiple folders - is it broken?

I have just been revisiting the file management capabilities of PL4 and believe that the folder indexing fails with any folder that contains sub folders. My collection of images is on a USB 2 drive and images are stored in folders named by date shot. All these folders are inside a single parent folder. When I select the parent folder the index appears to start and a side to side indicator is shown. The indexing never finishes and the drive and the computer remain quiet i.e. the cooling fans do not switch on. However, if I select the folders one at a time the noise level increases indicating that some processing is taking place. It seems to me that the indexing process fails when processing nested folder structures so I wonder if others see this? I am running PL4 on Mac OS Big Sur.
