I noticed that every time I start Browse, visit OLPC Library > images > world maps and click Africa (a PDF), another full copy of the PDF is added to ~olpc/.sugar/default/datastore/store by Read activity 45. If I read this bug correctly, that behavior is a downside of this bug fix.
This could be improved by hard linking identical files with copy-on-write to break the links.
