Hi Ivan,

I have run a test script to create 100 directories and then 100 more 
directories under each of the 100 directories. That means there is a total 
of 100x100=10000 directories.

To be clear, I try to construct something like /coda/test/xx/xx. xx is 
between 00 to 99.

In this case, they are seperate into two layers but I still fail to create 
more directories after creation of about 4k directories. That's why I wonder 
if this limitation extends to multiple layer of directories.

Best Regards,
