Wierd... haven't seen anything like that for ages (it used to be quite common
in the 1.10.8 days).

As a workaround you could kill them all overnight when the server is quiet.
It doesn't really fix it, though...

What compression (-z) settings are you using?  I wonder if switching it to the
opposite of what you use now would change anything.
