This is from the command-line.  Note specifically the '\' before ls, so
that you don't get anything like color-ls trying to stat all of the files.
This would tell us if the files are being found with readdir (they almost
certainly are) and that the problem is during lookup.  I assume if you do
"ls -l {filename}" it fails.

If you run "tune2fs -O ^dir_index" does the ls work again?
