How to limit the items logged to my.openhab

As the recent problems of my.openhab seem to be caused to by huge number of items that are logged, I tried to limit it in my case to just four using such an myopenhab.persist file:

Strategies { 
    default = everyChange
Items { 
    Item1, Item2, Item3, Item4  : strategy = everyChange

However, even after the deleting of all so far logged items on my.openhab and a restart of OH2 I see ALL items are being logged???

There is an issue open to fix this. I suspect that this bug is the cause of the problems on in the firstplace.

OK. In the case I’ll stopp the logging until this problem is solved.
