[users at bb.net] state.sqlite keeps growing in Buildbot eight

As I understand it, in Buildbot eight the state.sqlite file only stores information about builds that are scheduled. Information about builds that have already been completed is not stored there. Why then does the size of the state.sqlite file seem only to increase, never to decrease? Isn't it bad for the wear and tear of my disk to be constantly rewriting a several-hundred-megabyte-and-growing file containing mostly obsolete information?
