That is exactly it. I emphaises th words " when it is not memory-starved ".
It isn't memory starved.
Also I get 150Mb frequently of swap disk space, whilst still having a
complete third of my memory free!!
I can understand everyones view on this, that the swap algorithim is swaping
pre-emtively. But 150MB?? Is that what is called a low level of swaping??
