If the resaved FM files are only slightly larger than the earlier ones, the
generated PDFs may be just larger-enough to require an additional segment
of disk storage.

Have you tried Acrobat's Compare  PDF feature?

the size the second time I generate it from identical FM files.

Wild guesses:

One clue might be that 5kb growth is not much, IMO. Is it possible that the 
second PDF is storing information about its generation history? Perhaps a 
utility that compares the internals of the files has the answer.

Are the FM files changed or resaved before generating the second PDF?
