It states that the code is unable to page whole blocks, but that it is
able to process one by one items. This tells us that it works, just
not for 'larger' items in a row.
You mention that you received a coredump, can you process that with
'textdump' so that we can see what happened here? It could be some
other thing that
resulted in an error.
Recently I added a second swap partition to my setup, which didn't
lead to any problems you describe. Could be a local issue or just a
glitch in the matrix ofcourse.
