I haven't had any problems lately. I ran X with emacs, xpaint and xv
running at the same time yesterday (on my 8Mb 386/40), and it
worked without problems. Not without swapping, of course :) My
tree is about as current as it can be, and I've just recently recompiled
all my binaries (execpt my X binaries).

It could be a specific device driver that is messing up, maybe as
soon as a swap partitition is accessed? Maybe you should try
comparing what you have in your kernel to people who don't
have any problems.
