2 years ago I dragged and dropped 55,000 files from win to afs.

After some carping, the developers did something to make it work.

If you like I can do it again. But it would be for 1.5.11 (which is what is
on the website labelled 1.5.10).

Use the 1.5.10 installers.  1.4.2 does not support
inline bulk stat RPCs.  I'm sure that performing 15,000
RPCs to read the contents of a directory is going to
take some time.

As for the stat cache limit, that's a registry setting
documented in the release notes.
