I'm not aware of this. Are the old portion of the reports complete 
duplicates or partials?

The reports are suppose to be cleared apon successful sending of the 
report to a user.

Have you checked file permissions? I doubt this is the problem since the 
reports continue to grow (I assume).

Shouldn't be an issue.

The reports are sent via SMTP. It is possible that these reports are 
queued until the next queue run. Which begs the question how often do 
you do queue runs?

None at this time. From what you have said, I can't fathom why the delay 
in report delivery nor the reason for the old reports not being cleared.
