From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Description of problem:
Same behavior as noted in previous bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I have tried the various echo statements and the system still prefers
swapping to releasing file cache. The only positive workaround is to
disable the swap file completly.
Actual Results: After Disabling swap the file cache will be evacuated
as processes require.
We believe this has already been fixed in U4, which is in beta now.
