    Go on, have a guess
    exim_tidydb tidies up the hints databases (see exim.org for more information on what they are) in /var/spool/exim/db/* (and /var/spool/exim_incoming/db/* if you have it). It's a required function and there's little you can do to mitigate its need except perhaps run it more frequently in the root crontab.
