Bug#720967: running etckeeper during vcsh session: have fun

Today I made a really stupid face... :-)
Switching back to my terminal, observing etckeeper adding GB after GB of my
$HOME to its index...
Killed it, installed another package during the same aptitude
Looking at the process list...
There's a vcsh process somewhere above the aptitude process.
Should etckeeper have some checks build in that save stupid users like me?
Regards, Thomas Koch
