Why doesn't my Aperture library size decrease as I move original image files out?

I am in the process of moving originlal image files out of my iPhoto library.  I am moving them to a vacant external drive.  The process is going fairly well but is a little slow.  However, as I move groups of files out, I expect to see the overall size of my iPhoto library decrease.  This is the primary reason for going through this process.  What I do see is the size of my iPhoto library increase in size.  I've moved about 1 GB of photos out and have watched the library size grow from 39.9 GB to 40.6 GB.  What is going on?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
