Monitoring plugin and disk space weirdness

Hello, I’ve noticed a strange problem with disk space and the monitoring plugin since upgrading to Openfire 3.7.1 (Running on Debian Squeeze with a MySQL database and Windows AD for authentication).

I can see that conversation history is getting written to the MySQL database (monitoring plugin 1.1.1 installed). But it also seems to be writing conversation to disk in /local/openfire/monitoring/search

It is taking up GBs of space and seems to keep growing. Under archive settings in the admin console the space of this directory matches exactly:

7,992.3 MB

I have already pruned the conversation history in the MySQL database and the number of lines in the database goes down, but not the number of ocnversations in admin console. So it seems to me like it is writing it to disk and to the MySQL database. Does anyone have any ideas how to stop it doing this (write to MySQL tables only). It was not doing this before upgrade to 3.7.1 so I think a system property has changed somewhere, but I cannot figure out what.

xmpp.audit.active is already set to false.
