The developer confirmed that the process imports a lot of data, and
commits every now and then. By comitting more often we can keep these
files smaller. I've been watching it for a while now, and I see it grows
to about 7.3 GB and then it starts over again.
It seems everything works as it should then, the important thing is
simply to have enough space on /tmp.
Thanks for the pointers.
