System disk full - yet another SEP problem!

Encountered another SEP problem today when the system partition was reported full. Checking out the problem I noticed that the cause of the problem was a huge directory under Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\inetpub\content.
Check further and finding a Symantec Tech Support article regarding this issue on internet - "Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager has large number of files in \Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Inetpub\content folder".
Followed the instruction that involved setting a parameter - scm.lucontentcleanup.threshold=5, which should default to "10" if not present.
Setting this parameter achieved absolutly nothing and the default value apparently didn't work either since there were a large number of folders under the different subfolders.
Did a manual cleanup according to date and things seem to be fine at the moment. Bound to happen again though, if the above parameter doesn't work as advertised. All users of SEP are bound to run into this problem if it doesn't get fixed!! The folder contained > 10 GB of data before the manual cleanup.
Is it true that there is a new release of SEP? Does it fix the above problem?
