Default Have to manually clean up rendered files after committing elastic audio processing

Correct me if I'm misunderstanding something, but page 868 of the Pro Tools Reference guide clearly states under the "About Rendered Files" paragraph that once elastic audio processing is committed to an audio track, a new audio track is written to the Audio Files folder and the temporary file from which it was created is deleted from the Rendered Files folder.

As long as I have owned any version of Pro Tools up the current version of 9.0.3, I have never seen the program actually do this. Even after committing all audio files in the session, saving the session and closing out Pro Tools, it still leaves GIGABYTES of rendered wav files in my Rendered Files folder and I always have to manually remove them so my hard drive won't run out of space. I have searched through the entire Pro Tools Reference guide for any possible options controlling this and have so far not found anything.

The bottom line is that the reference guide appears to be saying one thing and the program is doing another. Avid, why is this???

Yes, these kind of irregularities are a PITA, but better an error of omission rather than an error of commission.
