Smart Update image size increasing over time

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, my search of the forums has been fruitless so far.

I backup nightly using Smart Update to an image file on a LaCie USB drive attached directly to my Mac Mini. As I understand it, the image should always mirror exactly the files on my drive (which currently total around 35GB).

What I see happening over time is the image file size keeps growing and growing. This morning for example it was up to about 75GB. If I delete the image and wait for the next backup to complete, it's down to 35GB or so again.

Whatupwiddat? Shouldn't the size be static?
