Big binaries via dbus & logged in shell.log?

On Sugar 0.84.2 (as seen on the OLPC F11 builds)... is it normal to
see big chunks of binary data passed around via dbus... and logged in

 - Is it normal / by design that big data is passed this way?
 - If yes, then maybe a good idea to switch off the verbose logging
before shipping? Otherwise, the stored/rotated shell.log hogs disk
(and burns flash) for no benefit...

I don't usually hack on the Sugar side so some things sure look odd to me --
