It scales badly wrt. the number of cached/hoarded files. The algorithm
does things like checking all cached files for each file added and
similar O(n) constructs.

I guess the 4GB of hoarded data consists of quite large files, otherwise
you would probably see some several second stalls, which result in
disconnections because the rpc2 listener thread isn't scheduled etc..
