May be this connection (actually - transaction inside it) was the
reason why database grown?..

Perfect statistic. If it always looks like this, sweep will never occur.
Perhaps (because of CS) there is no queries which would collect garbage.
I would return automatic sweep interval to default value and run
manual sweep nightly. Or just occasional queries like SELECT COUNT(*)
FROM TABLE to collect garbage. Or backup.
