Anyone have any idea why my .mxd file size increase 20 to 30mb in file size each time I save, then close the file?  I've used the hidden .mxd document defrag tool which did cut the original file size in half, but now it repeating the process.  The file gets larger and larger and larger and larger....grrrr....

I've used 9.3.1 with no issues in increasing file size...

There has to be a simple explanation.
