MyISAM index issue

I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. I have a problem on 5.1.66 running on Centos 6.

Any MyISAM table which is indexed creates a *.MYI fil 1GB in size even if the index is only a few kb. Well when I say 1GB in size, that's the reported size using du or dk however ls reports the correct size.

At first I thought this might be a operating system / FS issue but when I optimized one of the affected tables the problem went away..until it was re-indexed.

Any help on this matter would be really appreciated as I've spent most of the day trying to figure this out.
