Subject(2.4.9)kswapd goes haywire

I have a Dual PIII 933 on a Serverworks HE-SL Chipset Mainboard with 3GB
of RAM.

I don't have any swap configured and every now and then kswapd goes
haywire and eats the performace of a whole processor (99.9% in top)

I like murphy. Just a second ago kswapd went to 0.0 %. But as you can see
in my uptime and the processtime of kswapd it was haywire for nearly from
the beginning.

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
