[mythtv-users] Size of mythconverg database.

I am a relatively new user of Mythtv.  I installed Myth in February of 
this year and have been using the same database ever since.  Yesterday I 
noticed that the partition it is on was getting full.  One of the 
problems was that I originally assigned Myth Video to use that partition 
and then never moved its storage to a more spacious place.

But I was also surprised to see that /var/lib/mysql which is where the 
mysql database lives has 11GB!!!  That makes me suspect that there is 
some required housekeeping that I am not doing.  I have a fairly simple 
Myth system of one backend with one HVR 1600.  I started with MythTV 22 
and have switched to 23.

Should the DB really be that big?  There are only two databases, 
mythconverg and test.

What can I do to keep it more lean?
