But I think the issue was applications keeping old versions
of replaced files still open (there's a bug in bugs.maemo.org
about this and the large Gtk icon cache files which was fixed
in 44-1).

After being terminated on shutdown, those old files cannot
be anymore kept open by apps and file system can free
the space taken by them.
