Message 1311020 - Posted: 28 Nov 2012, 13:45:02 UTC

Haven't seen anybody report this problem recently, so thought it might be good time to see if tere was a significant number taking up room in the database.

I've just got one task,

There was a recent back-end change - changeset [5011e788] - which may be designed to address this. It still shows as 'yesterday', US time, so it's a bit too soon to expect any noticeable effects yet.

Hopefully it will get things cleared out in time. I have one from 2010 I would like to see go away.
