Similar system calls is only part of it.  The exact pattern of lookups  
counts for a lot with respect to kernel resource usage; you might poke  
at syslog when you get those failures to see if the kernel is whining  
about something.  File::Find has gone through a lot of development  
aimed at reducing its impact on the system, whereas in my experience  
the GNU folks tend to prefer the throw-more-resources-at-it method.
