I was having problems with very slow loading of my data file, so I ran Check & Repair All a couple of different times, and all of a sudden the partition holding the data file reached capacity. When I looked, the log files were on order of 45-50MB (my stored, compressed file is about 1.7 MB)...

Maybe.  It could be a bug in the C&R.  Or it could be your data file is
extremely broken.  What's in the log file?
