Spideroak pandora_sqliite file uses all disk space.

I use spideroak on Kubuntu 10.4
Today system have informed me that I run out of free space on my home partition.
I found very a strange behaviof of file with name "pandora_sqliite_database" inside /home/.spideroak directory.
File name is "_sqliite_", not "_sqlite_".
File size increased to 5GB now it decreased to 3GB, but it is still strange because I backup only 60MB.
What is inside this file?
Is everything OK with this its size?

My spideroak backup is 1GB and my pandora_sqliite file is 90MB. So something isn't right with your setup. I think there's an option to make backups locally. Perhaps you have that option checked?

Problem is solved.
I received exhaustive explanation from spideroak support.
It happened because I was downloading file in backup directory and its size was always changing.
