Sadly without the cleanup code Cassandane will fill the whole vmdk  
before it finishes a single run. Each instance directory takes 20 to  
40 MB, which is almost entirely Berkeley DB environment files. The 135  
test cases use at least one instance directory each.

Perhaps it might be better to delete only the BDB junk instead of the  
whole directory.
