[Samba] a question re. /var/run/samba/unexpected.tdb

Not having paid any attention, I discovered that this file grew to be
1048518656 bytes (this on a debian-based Linux system), and filled up
the (small) filesystem for /var.  Is there a 'normal' size that I should
expect for this file ?  What could be the reason for the large size?
And how could it be best reduced?  (There was a suggestion of stopping
samba, removing the file, and restarting samba - is this the right way?)


Thanks in advance for the help.
