I have noticed that ever since I've installed NetBSD (over a year ago) t=
the kernel never returns swap space to me.  Whenever I go into swap, tha=
amount used stays used until I reboot the system.  I have, since the ini=
NetBSD install, done a complete upgrade of all the OS files and of the k=
several times.  I don't know what could be causing this to happen.

I use the command "pstat -T" to return the amount of swap space used, an=
d it
never goes down.  Can anyone explain this?
