Subject: ask for help; hash-directory machanism of ext3 cannot work well

firstly, with many thanks! ^-^

my problem :
(1) when i want to format /dev/sda1 to be ext3-filesystem, i  set
"s_def_hash_version" of "struct ext3_super_block" to be "DX_HASH_LEGACY".
when the filesystem was formatted successfully, i mounted it under a
directory named "/mnt". 
(2) subsequently, i created 40000 empty regular-files under "/mnt" named
from "0" to "39999".
(3) then , "ls -li  /mnt" was executed; i saw a puzzling thing : there are
two indentical entries of the directory named "mnt"!  both inode->i_ino and
filename are in the same.

(4) when i change "DX_HASH_LEGACY" to be "DX_HASH_TEA", the problem listed
above not happend. 

i scratched my head over it, failed to find any reasonable answers.  :-(
so, i sent my question to u and expecting eagerly some help from you. 

thanks again! :-)
