If you do the second hotbackup, it should be almoust the same size than
your dump file. The difference are caused by berkeley DB log-files, which
are not cleaned automatically. So hot-backup often, and your backups will
be smaller. And what about log files, when BDB 4.2 is out, there is
feature for automatic cleaning.
