Read-only devices growing and best way to migrate from one host to another

I have a couple of mogile hosts with devices that are getting full.  I 
marked all of the devices on these hosts as 'readonly' but they seem to 
be increasing in size (although slower than before they were marked 
readonly).  Has anybody seen this before?  Any suggestions?

Also, does anybody have suggestions for moving all data off of one host 
and onto other hosts?  I am inclined to just mark a device as 'dead' and 
let nature takes its course as the replication fills up newer, better 
servers.  However, if somebody has a better solution I would like to 
hear it.

Oh, I am running a pre-2.0 mogile (svn snapshot from late June).

Thanks in advance,
