 What prompted me to suggest this is the fact that "/usr/doc" tends to
be listed with `dired', `tkdesk', `mc', or `httpd' quite often.  Every
time I open a `dired' buffer on it, WWW to it, or open a `tkdesk'
window there, the disk grryyyehzzzd-dzz-grryyyehzzzd-dzz-grryyyehzzzd's
and greeeyow-whine's. (sic)  Then it takes a certain amount of time
for `dired' or `tkman' to cons up its internal data structures to hold
the directory.

 I thought that with the directory broken down some, this will be

 `find' works well with the directories subdivided.  And typing an
extra '/s/' won't kill me, if I know right where to find what I want.

{C-u M-! find /usr/doc -name '*send*' -type d}
