mkdir -p chunked
cd chunked
git init
mkdir -p abc/def/ghi/jkl def
cd abc/def/ghi/jkl
touch foo
git add foo
seq 1 1000 | xargs touch
cd ../../../../def
seq 1 10000 | xargs touch
cd ..
git clean -dfx

Notice that the long operation of cleaning def (that only writes a
single line) is not printed immediately. The output here looks like
this:
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/1
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/10
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/100
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/1000
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/101
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/102
...
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/991
Removing ab<hangs>
c/def/ghi/jkl/992
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/993
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/994
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/995
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/996
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/997
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/998
Removing abc/def/ghi/jkl/999
Removing def/
