File-System optimization

we currently use fs to index our stuff, this is because we are already 
dumping xml for every record in our database.

my question is, is it faster to break the directory up into sub 
directories? right now, we have one directory called IDX that has all 
900K+ files in it. it takes a very long time for swish-e to move from the 
"Checking dir" phase to the actual indexing phase. "a very long time" is 
not really quantifiable right now since we generally don't see it 
happening and i am just noticing because i am running things manually 
today. it has been sitting at this stage for about 1.5 hours so far.

so should i try breaking the directory up into sub directories?
