I played around a little more with this and found some problems that I
have to investigate.  When I move a file into the area from another
directory it gives an error.  That isn't really a big deal but I don't
like putting things into production with known problems unless I have a
vague understanding of the problem.  So it will be a couple more days
before I have the time to track this down.

The size of this new, purged area is: 1926596K bytes.

(I fixed my purge script)
