It's the way BDB works, it writes everything to temporary log files as
well as to the database files. The log files eventually become
"complete" at which stage they can be backed-up and/or removed, and if
you set DB_LOG_AUTOREMOVE removal happens automatically. Commits that
cause logfiles to get removed might cause the repository to shrink, so
the average increase for lots of commits is likely to be smaller than
the increase you observed.
