vpopmail does directory hashing because some filesystems (ext2/3, UFS without 
DIR_HASH, etc) will slow to a crawl with large directories (the general rule 
of thumb is about 1000 files in a directory is the breaking point)

You can disable this when building vpopmail by configuring it with the 
--disable-users-big-dir flag.

Is this causing you any problems?  If not, then you should leave it how it is 
for performance reasons.
