Too Much Abstractions?

Yesterday I had an architecture consulting session at a major customer.
One of the questions that were raised was how to know when you
have too much abstractions in your code?
or to make it even more interesting – do more abstractions implies
better design? 
I want to make it an open discussion and to hear what is your opinion
about this subject before I’ll post my own.

    While I don’t necessarily believe that you can have too much abstraction there are certainly points where abstraction is unnecessary.  Abstraction in and of itself does not in any way imply good design (or even better design).

    That being said, I do believe that you can have too much inheritance.
