It's really weird. Therre is 3 definition files. After a bunch of updates the third definition file will lose a bunch of kb and the second definition file will get a big boost. The first definiion file will get bigger when they decide that the second definition file wil lose a bunch of kb. Why do they do this?

The definitions themselves could be linked together. But im not exactly understanding what you're saying.. Could you please be a little clearer?

To understand this, we would need to know:
1. Original status of all three files: date/update number/size
2. Which you downloaded first and when.
3. New status of the remaining two: date/update number/size
4. Which you downloaded second, and when.
5. New status of the last file: date/update number/size

One or more of these definition files might be cumulative, or you may have downloaded them out of temporal order, so that the files would reflect your prior activity.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
