Best XML Sitemap Generator

What is the best XML Sitemap[ generator has no limit on the number of pages?  The site I'm dealing with is between 50,000 to 100,000 pages.  Program that has a focus toward submitting to Google and ease of use.  Free or paid is OK - just something you've had good experience with over a long time and, hopefully, provides as much insight for you, as the website manager, as for Google.  So that, the report it generates is useful and manageable to you, too.  And, can be mined for insight on a user-friendly basis, rather than just an unspooling list of XML code in a text page.

for small sites I use the free version of http://www.xml-sitemaps.com
but for larger sites I use the paid version which is only $19
and deals with the size you want.

you buy it and upload to to your site and run it.  it will generate not only the site map but all the other things that help.
it generates xml and html site maps.  once you have a html site map put a link to it on your home page (footer say) and then rerun the site map generator and replace it all. seem to help me.
google has one that I've used a few times, I've never had any problems with it:

What do any of these do when a site has over 50,000 pages?  Do they just stop?  Or, carry on with an appended file name?
