do you think I should file a bug? against what? where?
I found a bug dealing directly with opening /usr/bin,
There is also a few links to performance related bugs here,
yeah, this one in particular seems relevant:
However they all seem to think that it's all because the directory is
read (to be able to autocomplete etc.) which is not entirely true cause
bash autocompletes as well yet I cannot seem to be able to make it stall
on directories with few thousand files (local disk).
Seems like the problem is getting mime type (as mentioned here
before) or something of that nature...
