comment Overriding amended time stamps
Did you try to debug to see why only works the first time? You have a logic error there that you did not take into account. suggestion: put set -x before IFS and set +x after done. then run the script twice and you will understand why it's adding timestamps.

comment for vs find in Bash
changing the hard limit is hardly a proper workaround from my POV. Specially when talking about 2+ million files. Without digression from the Question, for simple cases as one level directory for is faster, but if you change your file/directory structure it will be harder to migrate.
