[Making large directories snipped]
Ie,  create a real path of a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/etc/passwd
Then create a path of      b/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/a/etc

Beware. If you create these directories, then try to cd to the end, you
will get logged out.

I have just been experimenting with > 500 subdirectories, and repeatedly
get logged out when cd'ing to the end.
