They are "transaction log files". Very important. Do not delete. :-)

The logfile with the highest number is the only one needed. The other
ones are "old" and redundant. The logfile contains the complete state
for the map and if you throw away your image SqueakMap will recreate
itself "in image" by loading the available logfile with the highest

Sure, we could rename the files. In the database world people often talk
about "transaction logs" and that is what I meant.
