Oh, well. I should have known! 2:30am is quite late.
But what about the mentioned problem when the program was started from a 
network filesystem. I.e. a diskless workstation would swap every program over 
network. (when there is a harddisk for swaping of course) Is there a way to 
force swapping to swap [filesystems,partitions]? Something like
swapon /dev/hda --swap-all-data-and-code
