gdaltools fial to create a virtual catalog if there are mmany rasters.
Infact gdaltool call the "gdalbuildvrt" passing each for each every raster.
This method seem to fill the command line buffer because on windows it return a strange error.
Instead gdalbuildvrt.ee allow to use a file to give a list of all the raster to be catalogue.

the option is

So I think a better strategy is to write the raster list on a temporary file using the -input_file_list option to pass to the gdalbuildvrt program and remove it after the end of operation.
