Well, with a recent version, that will help keep the index from growing as
fast, but it will still grow. That's the point of my garbled description.
However, if Zoltan is _not_ vacuuming regularly, that's a problem as well.
If he wasn't, though, I'd have expected him to complain about the size
of the table file, not the index file.
