I should have wrote that I tried the obvious already :-/

I'm using the latest swapoff, and have verified it gets executed
at shutdown. Swap partitions are umount'ed properly, but swapfiles
seem to stay active.

I've not been on the kernel cutting edge for a while (using v2.1.17),
though I've had this problem for quite some time (it finally got
annoying enough to ask for ideas).
