I'm not completely happy either: even with 40 some applications get paged out,
which didn't occur with 2.4.

I also had a new deadlock this night (possibly during the daily periodic run).
Symptoms were the same as usual: no keyboard input, no network activity, many
pmap_interlock messages on the console...

The new crash dump is there: http://www.wolfpond.org/crash.dfly/

I have now set vfs.vm_cycle_point to 64 just in case. I may still be
positively surprised...
