In my case, I have two machines with IDENTICAL hardware, IDENTICAL
kernel images, IDENTICAL start scripts, which assign DIFFERENT
priorities to their two swap drives - one assigns -1 and -2 whilst the
other assigns -2 and -3 and I've no idea why...

Doesn't affect system behaviour though, so I havenae worried about
