Ouch, I should have looked into the code more carefully.
That was my over thought. Sorry for confusing. But I'd
say -u should not be used for buffindexed, since it just
appends index/data and this means occupied buffer will
grow to over double size until next expireover. As to
tradindexed, data (not index) is also appended and the
same problem occurs.
