Ok, I've tried to recreate this on a Linux system with 10,000 files
in a directory and cannot. I explicitly set debug level and ensured
there were many :

get_lanman2_dir_entry: out of space

messages in the log. This means there isn't a problem with this code
path as such, but may be a problem with an AIX specific implementation.

The new large directory code depends on opendir/telldir/readdir/rewinddir
all working correctly - I'm slightly worried in that your log contains
the message :

get_lanman2_dir_entry:readdir on dirptr 0x20044568 now at offset 0

Offset zero usually means the start of the directory - the offset hasn't
yet been initialized. Getting this near a "get_lanman2_dir_entry: out of space"
looks like something may be wrong in the directory code under AIX.

Can you try and reproduce this on a non-AIX system.
