That's the atomic commits making the copy of the module directory. You
can turn that off and it'll be back to normal operation. You can
search on atomic commits to read the general comments on it.

You could do either:
1) Turn off atomic commits
2) Change user permissions to be full for all repository module dirs and
restrict the top-level module creation with a script. I think the
commitinfo event would do it, but I'm not sure--check the docs, it's
probably been done before.
