Yes those sizes are unreasonable... It sounds like expiry is never running
on your system.

SA will _try_ to do expiry on an opportunistic basis, but only if no other
processes are using the bayes DB at the same time. A busy mailscanner
server will likely never succeed at opportunistic expiry.

Try running expiry manualy using sa-learn --force-expire and see if it
clears things up.
