 Replying to [comment:6 aa]:

 > The default_file path is '', and so the filesize is updated with an
 inexistent file.
 That's a bug in the data store then. Passing file_path='' for an entry
 that already has data means updating the metadata only and leaving the
 data unchanged (see [http://git.sugarlabs.org/projects/sugar-
 carquinyol.filestore.FileStore.store()]; especially notice the commented
 out part).
 If we change the API to not support metadata-only updates anymore, more
 than just the Journal will break.
