I have been running with 118M of swap space (I dedicated a drive for swap)
for the last year.
I have 32M of memory. I had played around with running about 10 xboards
playing themselves. Each xboard starts 2 gnuchess processes. Each gnuchess
process consumes about 9M of memory. (talk about thrashing :)
