Have you tried optimizing your wordlist? BerkeleyDB databases tend to
grow and become fragmented over time. Dumping and reloading will save
space and will improve performance. Try the following:
cp wordlist.db wordlist.db.save
bogoutil -d wordlist.db.save | bogoutil -l wordlist.db.new
ls -l wordlist.db*
cp wordlist.db.new wordlist.db
