[MediaWiki-l] Database size ballooning?

Our database quadrupled in size, from 220 MB in March to 933 MB in
September, for a MediaWiki 1.20.2 that I host for a friend on a shared
hosting account at Dathorn.com. I suspect something may be wrong
because the wiki's content has not grown much at all in this same

The wiki is Teflpedia.com.

http://teflpedia.com/Special:Version shows:
MediaWiki 1.20.2
PHP 5.3.27 (litespeed)
MySQL 5.5.32-cll

Anyone have a clue what may be causing our database to balloon, or
tips what I should check?
