SubjectStrange behaviour of swap under 2.4.5-ac15

I've running 2.4.5-ac15 for almost a day (22 hours) and I found
some strange behaviour of the kswap, at least it was not present in
2.4.5-ac9. The swap memory increase with time as the cache dedicated
memory also increase, that is swapping process at a very fast rate, even
when no program is getting more memory. Is that the expected behaviour?
An example, with no process running (just the usual daemons and
none of them getting extra memory) the command:

free ; sleep 60; free

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 513416 393184 120232 364 63276 254576
-/+ buffers/cache: 75332 438084
Swap: 530104 14228 515876

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 513416 393192 120224 364 63276 258412
-/+ buffers/cache: 71504 441912
Swap: 530104 18064 512040

Any idea?
