    Yep, me again. I've been playing around with ac17 on my old 486 machine
    for a few days (it seems strange that the 486 works fine while the K6
    doesn't, but I digress) and I noticed today something that made my hair
    stand on end:

    Jun 26 16:17:27 debian kernel: VM: Bad swap entry 0033da00
    Jun 26 16:17:27 debian kernel: Unused swap offset entry in swap_count
    0033da00
    Jun 26 16:17:27 debian kernel: Unused swap offset entry in swap_count
    0033da00
    Jun 26 16:38:16 debian -- MARK --
    Jun 26 16:53:13 debian kernel: PPP BSD Compression module registered
    Jun 26 16:53:14 debian kernel: PPP Deflate Compression module registered
    Jun 26 16:53:24 debian kernel: VM: Bad swap entry 0033da00

    Now I have been told by Rik Van Riel that this is a kernel bug - I
    initially figured it was a bad disk, thanks to him I can breathe now...

    Anyway, at the time the kernel did these messages I was just stopping
    playing quake on my K6-III (486 handles packets to/from the modem) and
    was reloading the compression modules, changing the mtu of my modem's
    interface to 1500 from 576, and starting fetchmail. And about one
    minute later I decided to simply disconnect.

    I can't seem to find a way to reproduce this problem all the time like I
    can with the freezing bug, but I will reply to this thread if I see it
    again and/or can repeatedly reproduce it.
