ColdFusion Stops Serving After a Few Requests

Just had an issue where ColdFusion would only serve a few requests before locking up and sending constant 503 errors.  Turns out there were almost 200k files in C:Coldfusion8
untimeserverscoldfusionSERVER-INF empwwwroot-tmp.  So, to fix this I stopped ColdFusion, renamed wwwroot-tmp to wwwroot-tmp2 and make a new wwwroot-tmp.  Once ColdFusion was started it ran like a champ again.  My theory is the disk I/O was killing CF when it was looking for a chached file.
