I'm sure I don't like it :-).  Do you like

        cd /dev
        ls $(jot -w tun 8000 0) # 8000 = big, but not too big for ARG_MAX
        ls tun*

The first "ls" should create about 8000 new tun devices by first accessing
them via stat(2), but there is some garbage collection, so the second "ls"
may show that some of the devices have magically unappeared.
