Can anyone help me figure this out?  I've been using duplicity-0.6.26
happily for quite a while but I'm finally up against disk space.  One
of my systems has 14GB in /root/.cache/duplicity/ compared to 38GB in
the backup target.  That seems crazy so I deleted the cache but the
next duplicity run brought it right back in full 14GB glory.

Will running another full backup and using remove-all-but-n-full and
remove-all-inc-of-but-n-full reduce disk space usage at the backup
target and in the cache?

Is there another way to reduce the disk space used as cache?
