Default Bug#517347: linux-image-2.6.28-1-686 writing to swap disk

Package: linux-image-2.6.28-1-686
Version: 2.6.28-1: i386 (debian/unstable)
System: Debian/sid
Processor: Intel Pentium M 1.70 GHz (Family 6 Model 13 Stepping 6)
Memory: 995.30 MB physical, 494.15 MB virtual

After upgrading kernel 2.6.26-1-686 to 2.6.28-1-686 the system starts writing to the swap disk while the physical memory is not fully used.
After a quite short time of computing, the swap disk is full.
This never happened with kernel 2.6.26 nor any other previous kernel. Previously the swap disk was almost not used.
The only change I did was uprading the linux-image.

Best regards,
Jos v. Wolput

can you try latest 2.6.28 snapshots and see if 2.6.28.7 fixed that?
see sid apt lines http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel

if not please try 2.6.29-rc7 from trunk and see how it goes there.
if that still does not fix it please report upstream on
bugzilla.kernel.org and let us know the bug nr.

thanks + kind regards

I tried linux-image-2.6.28-1-686_2.6.28-2~snapshot.12968_i386.deb and also
linux-image-2.6.29-rc7-686_2.6.29~rc7-1~experimental.1~snapshot.13071_i386.deb.
Both don't use the swap disk excessively.
This bug seems to be fixed.

Thanks,
Jos v. Wolput
