Please, sorry me.
The script I was using to test the performance difference between indexed and 
non indexed ext3 directories is not good.
I have discovered it making a reiserfs filesystem and running the script on 
it. The results are the same for non htree ext2 and reiserfs. I believe that 
the problem is the time needed for exec the commands that are run into the 
script main loop.

I have just used the C program that Daniel Phillips used in ist benchmarks:
and now I can see the great performance gain with the indexed directory (I 
have just tested only the reiserfs, but I'm sure that the results are very 
great in the ext3 htree too).

I'll test the new patch you have send to me.
