The notion that 90% of the WAL could be backup blocks even at very long
checkpoint intervals struck me as excessive, so I went looking for a
reason, and I may have found one.  There has been a bug in CVS HEAD
since Feb 8 causing every btree page split record to include a backup
block whether needed or not.  If these numbers were taken with recent
8.3 code, please retest with current HEAD.
