    Exclamation My Ubuntu BIN has gone bust

    I am no longer able to enter into /usr/bin without my file browser going bust and my system/CPU/memory/swap/whatever the hell freezing the entire PC and getting stuck for literally 3 or 4 minutes before it finally opens the file/folder.

    I dunno whether it has to do with what I notice to be a folder within /usr/bin that contains (according to file browser's count) 2000-plus items in it called /usr/bin/X11 (when I want to go there the same thing happens all over again and it takes me almost 5 minutes just to enter and see the damn folder!!!

    What on earth is going on?

    Has my usr/bin duplicated itself???? HELP

    I also want to know two things:
    1) whether it is normal that in the world of Linux/Ubuntu just opening a folder takes so much time (=5 minutes)

    2) whether it's normal that there are 2030 files in /usr/bin and again 2030 files in /usr/bin/X11 and apparently again in /usr/bin/X11/X11.... and on and on (when does it stop? I'm not planning to click on each sub-folder to infinity)
    .
