This is causing problems for darcs hub, where eg a 2k-patch-file repo
can accumulate 34k additional patch files in two months. It would be
helpful to know more what user operations or code paths cause the extra
files (duplicate patch files ?) to be written.
Linking patch1134 here. This seems to be helping.
Incidentally, is there a similar issue with files accumulating in the
darcs cache (eg in ~/.cache/darcs/*/) ? darcs hub currently has 100k
