I'm not sure I can do that because the error only happens intermittently. If I start the system with 1 swapfile, then add e.g. 3 more, then *sometimes* I get that 1 != 4 message from "sysctl -l" And, oddly, I can keep trying "sysctl -l" and it works, and then, suddenly, I will get one that says 1 != 4 again.
I do not know how to reliably 'trigger' this. And, it is 'transitory' in that I would guess I get maybe one 1 != 4 every 50 successful "sysctl -l" operations.
I will try to get this to happen more frequently so I can catch it with ktrace. (which options do you suggest? I'm thinking "ktrace -d -p <shell-pid>" )
Thanks for looking at this,
