swapctl -l shows:

Device      512-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Priority
/dev/sd0b       524288        8   524280     0%    0
/dev/sd1b       524288        8   524280     0%    0
Total          1048576       16  1048560     0%

So that's not it.  Any other suggestions?  I'm willing to speculate and
investigate pretty much anything at this point.
