It is possible that there is a bug in the ack compaction feature, but if so
it only shows itself in

also the performance impact to take into consideration. We would need to do
some performance
measurements before trying this in production. If the performance impact is
not too bad, then we
could ask for a proper disk to be added to the machine and move the logging
there with the TRACE
