mxd file sizes

Dear all,

a few weeks ago I updated from ArcGIS 10.0 to 10.1. Now recently I noticed a phenomenon several times:

When running processes take very long time or even don't work out at all I try to clear the .mxd file from no more required layers. Quite surprised I found out that the file size - instead of decreasing - was even enlarged.

What reason might there be for that? Maybe it doesn't have to do with version 10.1 but I just didn't observe it before.

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
