I know this question may seem silly..  However, here's my scenario.

I have a very large directory (say, a mail spool) whose directory entry is approx 606K..
drwx------ 5 cyrus cyrus 606208 May 25 10:29 .
Now.. That directory had a lot of files in it. However, after deleting all of the files in that directory, the directory entry's size stays the same. I realize this is fairly unimportant, however is there a way to 'garbage collect' that directory entry and all others like it?
