I've just tried it with the HVSC, plus ~90 GB of mp3/ogg files on my
gigabeat S for a total of ~62k files, and dircache is fine. It did a
foreground scan on the first reboot after copying the HVSC over, but
only the once. It is reporting itself initialised with 62500 entries
(and is using a massive 3822696 bytes). Browsing files seems fine too.
