Question calibre sometimes creating very big files

A couple of times when I have used calibre to convert small books of poetry (say 500kb) the LRF end-result created by calibre is very big = 2.5 MB and difficult to use in the Reader. The LRF books are still legible, but have lots of extra blank lines and page-turns take forever.

This happened first when I tried to create an LRF of one book from a text format, and again this week when I did a Mobipocket .prc conversion to LRF.

Has anyone else encountered this, or is there something simple I should do
so that the files are not so big?

I am not deliberately adding blank lines, but
perhaps the many "end-line" and "end-paragraph" characters in poetry books
are confusing calibre?
