I make heavy use of the WordPress Transient API. Suddenly a few days ago my wp_options table began being flooded with transient entries (2GB worth on average).

Normally WordPress only writes them to the DB if there is not persistent object caching mechanism. However I use Lite Cache for object caching and that hasn't changed in months.

Any ideas on why this would start happening?
