Handle upper limits for number of files to store in a directory gracefully for maildir folders

E.g. FAT32 only supports 65k files in a directory. Some people have more than that in a folder.
hmm. I wouldn't think many users will be using fat32, except for flash USB.
other than that, fat32 is supported but legacy for winxp and linux. 
Could we simply not support maildir on fat32?
