It's probably been around for ages and only happens every 10,000 posts.
The Thread Display code is quite old and uses saved html versions of the posts and a lot of parsing to display the page. Since it works and it's fast, we never bothered to re-write it to use the database though it's on our list for the new responsive code stream.
Anyway, it's all the posts that are in the 115 message dir that have the problem because the original post, 1149993, caused a new 115 dir to be created. Unix doesn't like a million posts in one dir and we still save html versions of the posts even though the db handles most displays. I like the idea of a hard copy backup as well even though it's somewhat silly with slave/replication db servers that we have. Disk space is cheap.
I'll take a look in the morning, it's a fairly simple fix.
