I see it fails if there are too many subdirectories (>=101 ?)
and you try to remove them, what happened with my lndir(1). It
probably created ~10000 or more.

No, but to reproduce I just did

mkdir -p a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j/k/l/m/n/o/p/q/r/s/t/u/v/w/y/x/z/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j/k/l/m/n/o/p/q/r/s/t/u/v/w/y/x/z/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j/k/l/m/n/o/p/q/r/s/t/u/v/w/y/x/z/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j/k/l/m/n/o/p/q/r/s/t/u/v/w/y/x/z/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j/k/l/m/n/o/p/q/r/s/t/u/v/w/y/x/z

and tried to remove everything from a/.

rm -rf worked.
