Yes, this is usual for anything though, so not to worry.

I think we should <temporarily> ignore Chris and Corinnas concerns re
thunking vs hacking the loader and get a patch that is
a) stable
b) leverages pathconf to reduce repeated overheads
c) sets PATH_MAX
d) stable

And that'll involve us having a setup mirror I think, to get some
testing: we'll want new copies of tar bash and ash for example.

Once the thing has shown itself, we can do some perf testing - opening
1000 files for instance, and see what the overhead is. Personally, I
think it will be zero, as FindFirst et al go through a kernel trapdoor.
