I have a theory: did the script move the remaining files to another 
directory? If not it may be that there's a fragmentation problem at the 
directory level; i.e. the directory structure was grown to accomodate 
32k entries, not there's only 5k entries but they are spread over the 
old 32k entries leading to inefficient lookups? If so something like 
this should fix it:

    mkdir newdir
    mv olddir/* newdir  # hope there's no dot file
    rmdir olddir
    mv newdir olddir
