This might not be a bug but I was wondering if anyone was aware of this.

My system is running Linux on a x86 system.
I've had this same problem a few years back while installing mono-2.2 also.

The problem is that there is a directory named
'abcde12345abcde12345abcde12345abcde12345' in mono/tests and it is repeatedly
created under itself for a great many sublevels. If I remember correctly from
mono-2.2, it was about 100 levels deep.
I don't know of or how to use a command that will show me how many levels so I
can't be more specific.

rm -R tests will delete it so no permanent harm done. But Midnight Commander
certainly didn't like it.

I'm guessing that this directory was created during 'make check'

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./configure
2. make
3. make check
4. make install

Actual Results:  
Just read the details above. I've filled out enough of these text boxes Novell

Expected Results:
