Ok, now funny bit happends. Simple program like that:
while(1){
char *a=malloc(1024*1024*16);
if (a==NULL)
break;
}
can allocate only about 200MB, than exits. That's the fist thing.
Second one, starting KDE, and when swap usage != 0 (just to be sure
there is no problem with any assumption), gives me loads of error
messages (see attached file).

Very bizzare behavior.
