11 GB is huge indeed. My mythconverg databasefiles take up 78 MB of
diskspace. That Mythconverg database is in use for about 6 years now... Not
doing any real housekeeping there. Are the timestamps on the files in
/var/lib/mysql all fairly current? Could it be that some files have been put
there that don't belong there? Is there a database backup script that dumps
it's contents there and that you now have loads of daily copies?
