writing to jffs2 is so slow?

I have an empty mtd partition (capacity is 16 MB) where a jffs2 fs is 
mounted. The strange observation is that making a first directory on 
that partition takes almost 2 minutes. So far I observed this behaviour 
just when making the first directory and just on that particular 
partition. Can anyone help me to explain this? Is there anything wrong 
with flash memory (hardware) or MTD device driver or JFFS2? Thanks.
