Can this be resolved please? Seems a shame in 2017 on a machine with 16GB of ram I suffer this. Each filename is around 40 bytes.

Roughly 60,000 files

So total strings around 2.4 MBytes. Quite a small limit.

$rm jonny*.*
bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long

rm (GNU coreutils) 8.25

I'm not on this list, could you keep my email address in replies

Regards, Jonny
