I totally forgot to mention another important bit: the growing swap
consumption can be triggered "reliably" simply by installing a lot of
Debian packages -- doing an "apt-get upgrade" for example. (I
occasionally observed growing memory usage with other commands doing I/O
on large amounts of data as well; but couldn't pinpoint any specific
situations so far... Perhaps it's just some randomly triggered bug
accumulating dead objects in memory or something like that?)
