Program size getting huge

The size of the program is increasing at a rapid rate (Mac OS 10.7.5 desktop)
I just had 4 clients running for two and a half days, and the log.txt was an astounding 58.6 MB.
In early July the size of my program was 262.8 MB - two different clients, one DP and one Main (I keep old clients so I just checked). Currently my client is a whopping 923.7 MB, and that's up from 868 MB yesterday. I'm obviously going to need to do a fresh install, with the hassle of uploading every save for myself first.
If this is result of the precise wiggle, I suspect that I will not be using it. As it is, it makes my fans loud. The only other thing that gets my fans cranking is mutate, so I do very little of those puzzles.
It's getting to the point where computing power is becoming supreme here. I am lucky enough to have a 1 year old, top of the line Mac. I tested the precise versus the less precise on 755 by running an overall rebuild script that has 30 loops. The less precise took 12 hours to complete. I finally killed the precise run after 48 hours that only made it to loop 27. Yes, the precise gained more points.
But how many folders have the computing power to test the different server models, with run times like that for scripts, and with the current bloat in the program?
