The dets files still have their 32bit limitation.

I've heard it rumoured here that dets have the following issues
* when fragmented, the freelist is all in memory and occupies too much memory
* recovery time for large files are unresonable long

Are they true, as in, has it been a problem for anyone?

How do solutions that perform better do?
