[opensuse] /bin/rm: Argument list too long

Hello:

I've just realized that my .thumbnails folder occupies 3.3 Gbyte
space. I wanted to empty it by:
rm .thumbnails/large/*

but got the error message:
bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long

The file number in the folder is ~ 60 000.

Why rm is not working?
Is this a bug?

How can I delete these files w/o removing the folder itself?

Thanks,
IG


ps: The system is default openSUSE 10.3 with default kde 3.5.7
