Well, on my A3000 running a 951021 kernel uses more and more swap day
by day.  I don't run perl.  After the first day of running, the system
was using about 5 megs of swap.  This has now increased to 7 megs (5
days of uptime).  When I was running an older kernel and had an uptime
of 30 days, swap usage was 10 megs already.

I believe there's a small memory leak somewhere.  I have checked ps and
top listings, but haven't seen any process taking up large amounts of

Is anyone else seeing this?
