This is one of the reasons why you should have at least as much swap as
you have memory. Even if it goes to waste (such as 1GB for a web
server running mod_perl).
My next question is, where on the harddrive is savecore pulling the data
from? Since this is happening across multiple reboots, it has to be located
somewhere on the harddrive.
