Some increase in size can be expected due to changes in how much
information we are able to report about each variant, although I am
surprised you had such a large increase.

I assume you have used the same command line options with each run?

It might be useful to know the difference in the number of lines of output
each version produced - you can get this using wc under unix:

wc -l my_output_2.2.txt my_output_2.6.txt
