If it were a normal file, then I would say that it is just openning a 
file, writing on it, and removing the file descriptor without closing 
the file.... then the file grows and you can't see it on the filesystem 
with ls, du, etc...

But what makes me crazy, is the fact that this is happenning with a 
directory..... (I know, it is some kind of special file....)... so, I 
don't know what is happenning and how to solve it...
