this will not help as long you are not using "innodb_file_per_table"
and if you would using it "ibdata1" would not grow
in my opinion "innodb_file_per_table=0" is a dumb default and
requires that people with too few expierience with mysql/innodb
would much more carefully read documentations as they usually do
