FRS creates unneeded folders in DFS root

I generated a DFS Root on my domain. I created several links to this root. For practice I enabled a replication for the domain DFS Root and also replicated several of the links to another member server. All works well. My question is about several additional folders in the DFS Root folder. Every Link Folder has several additional folders with numbers after the folder name in the root folder these folders are empty. What are these for?
This was addressed in Microsoft KB article 265365: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=265365. You should apply the newest Win2K service pack to address the issue.
