  Directory size grows when creating/deleting thousands of files

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Run the attached bash script. ( it might cause wear and tear on your
  hard drive ).

  What I expect should happen :

  Folder size of test should be 4.0K like before I ran the test.

  What actually happened :

  Folder size is not 2.1M ( 2138112 bytes ).

  There does not seem to be any way to recover the 2 megabytes lost and
  the only way to get the folder size back to 4.0K is to delete it and
  recreate it.

  lsb_release -rd :
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
  Release:	14.04

  apt-cache policy linux-generic :
