What kernel do you use? Maybe you tripped over one of the many many VM 
problems that have troubled the 2.4.x series from the beginning. 
Especially if you use an older 2.4.x kernel with the Rik VM, your swap 
won't help unless it's at least twice as large as physical memory. It 
sounds weird but you try to DEactivate all swap and try again.


Where...the ENIAC is equipped with 18000 vacuum tubes and weighs 30 tons,
computers in the future may have 1000 vacuum tubes and perhaps weigh just
1-1/2 tons.
