That doesn't appear to be the case in my experience. [Just to give you
an idea:

merkel 02:51:40 /org/scratch/don$ du -sh estraier/
11G     estraier/
merkel 02:51:42 /org/scratch/don$ ps axfu|grep estraier
don      28099  0.0  0.6 345984 305392 pts/6 S+   Jul18   0:08  |   \_ /home/don/estmaster start estraier

The biggest it got when I was adding the entire database was around a
1.5G. Just for reference, the current size of the BTS is around 30G.]

(Some of that bloat is the fact that I'm evil and build estmaster
statically too...)
