I have a question. Is this done on purpose or is it a bug?
I noticed that even if I have 3 - 4 quite new Blogs (1 or 2 Posts each), exporting the database brings up a nearly 2 MB size file.
Looking into it, I noticed that there are complete Websites (Latest T-Shirt Offer for instance) inside the Database or any Link that appears in the Dashboard puts the website behind the link into the database.
Maybe this is one reason that it takes so long, when you want to edit a post until the site appears? It seems, that WordPress is moving through all the links, puts the websites into the database and then finally opens the edit page...
Not sure if I am right, but megabytes of stuff in the database seems not to be normal to me.
What do you think?
