imho, a 670MB Bayes DB is a massive perfomance hog.
Using autolearn and expiring every night, I doubt you'd really need more 
than the default settings. You'd probably be surprised how fast SA will 
process your mail with a less than 50 MB token file.

If you are counting the Bayes_seen file, this irrelevant and can be 
deleted unless you need sa-learn to "forget" msgs.
