    Well, after a few days of running with the patched 2.1.130, I have never
    seen evil cache growth and the performance has been great throughout.
    If you can give me a reproducible way of observing bad worst-case
    behaviour, I'd love to see it, but right now, things like

    wc /usr/bin/*

    run just fine with no swapping of any running apps.
