I noticed Mandel Machine has been taking longer and longer to open. Also my hard drive was short on disk space (I also need a bigger drive if I am to continue rendering HD zoom movies). Meanwhile I have also done some huge renders approaching .5 Gigapixel limit in size.

Basically I am searching for the culprit eating disk space, and the history folder in Mandel Machine had 8000 items consuming nearly ten gigabytes! I deleted all of it. Good as new!

Which brings me to my next point; is there a way to limit the number of history locations in MM? I see no reason for it to store my last 4000+ locations in history. Twenty or so items in history should be plenty enough so you can back up or revert if you make an error. I save frequently, and unimportant locations can be saved as compact files without iteration data attached. Is there some way to artificially limit the history, or do I wait until it gets slow before I remember to delete it manually?

Versions 14 and 15 are affected.
