On the dev list they have talked about how the way NTFS handles small
files is not ideal for the way WC's operate. There are a ton of very
small files created in the WC folders. This can cause performance issue
on NTFS.

I think there are some optimizations going into 1.2 that would greatly
help this. I am not sure if there is anything you can do yourself.

FWIW, I believe the issue is that if a file is less than X bytes, it is
stored with the folder itself, whatever that means.
