I haven't read all your mail, I'm sorry for it in advance, but I think that you should know that "overheard" is just a blasting phrase for something which was made up by phpmyadmin.
Basically, when you run a lot of DELETE or UPDATE queries on a table an "overhead" is created, generally speaking this "overhead" is a space between rows in the database file, which will cause mysql engine to insert rows into this space on future INSERT queries. You can imagine your table as a hard drive, every couple of months (some may say weeks) you have to run a de-fragment on it, you can do the same with your database table, look up the query OPTIMIZE TABLE which will do the de-frag for you :) If you have any further questions feel free to bring them up.
