I created a folder with 5001 files in it ... maybe that is not enough?
 I just used small simple text files as I was only checking for the
general problem in managing the temp files and the WC metadata.

Upon checkout (using 1.6.15 command line client) I did not notice any
slowdown. Windows checked out via HTTP across internet in about 49
seconds as opposed to 33 from my Mac (which is a faster system). The
main thing is checkout did not seem to slow down.

The bad news is that I tried it again with trunk. Both Windows and
Mac were much slower and I was doing the tests because I thought it
would be much faster. Windows time went up to 210 secs and OSX to
about 90 seconds.

In all cases, the performance seemed linear. I did not see it start
to get slower.
