[ejabberd] Q about crash reporting and offline msgs

hey there,

first of all, i moved the ejabberd-2.0.5 server from old slow hardware
(celeron, 2G RAM) and old OS (Linux 2.4) to new hardware (Xeon 2.66GHz, 8G
RAM) and new OS (FreeBSD 7.2 64bit) running 2.1.0-rc and the server is
running at 96% idle.  this is simply mind blowing how little CPU ejabberd
takes on the new machine.  it is eating up some more memory, since more is
available, but thats OK.

i also have two questions:

1. my offline_msg.DAT file is at 45MB, but most users retrieve their offline
messages.  do offline messages not get get deleted automatically after they
are retrieved?  do i need to run 'ejabberdctl delete_expired_messages' to
delete messages which already got retrieved from the server?  i just dont
want messages which were not retrieved to get deleted and
delete_expired_messages is a bit unclear on what it defines as "expired"

2. every since moving to a new server, 2.1.0-rc2 generated a few .crash
files.  should i send some to somebody to look at?  if so, whom?
