With changing from 2.5.34-mm2 to -mm4 I have experienced some moments of
quite unresponsive behaviour. For example I am building X which at that
special moment causes pretty heavy disk load and the system doesn't respond
at all. I was using X and was not able to switch consoles or move mouse only
I have seen that it used more swap that usual.

This is how it looks like under normal circumstances and when building X I
had 20M in swap usage which seemed quite a lot to me. Maybe I'm just wrong.
Unfortunately I was not able to start vmstat, first because I can't start
vmstat when system is not responding and second it doesn't work anyway
because of your changes.
