[Loadstone] deleted points in database

The deleted points do stay in the database. This so that if the database is 
exported to the point share the system can remove the points from the main 
database. For this reason you don't remove deleted points from the exported 
file. These probably don't take up very much space. In normal opperation 
there shouldn't be enough deleted points to cause a problem. If you wanted 
to start with a clean database you could upload your data to the point share 
and then redownload it and reimport it in to a fresh database. The point 
share site won't send deleted points.
