That's sounds like this bug, yes. I had that problem also. But I can
imagine that patching so close before a release can give some problems...

A good test is to run the following program from /usr/lib (or another
LARGE directory.) Maybe Peter could try that once with a new kernel?

program test_readdir;

var str : string;
