SubjectRe: Results: Zlatko's new vm patch
Well, sometimes the system writes to swap before I have used half my
memory ( in X ) I view this with wmmon in windowmaker.. also on shutting
down the system, it fails to unmount partitions saying they are busy and
forcing checks next boot saying they were not cleanly unmounted.
2.2.0-pre4 - pre6 ( I do not have pre7 to test )
