Sorry a typo. kap is kpm! About believing the numbers: Yes and no. Even the
used physical memory (RSS in top) is very high for these programs and I got
killed processes due to the Out of Memory killer! When I log in (freshly
booted) via kdm into kde2 my memory & swap is nearly "full" (command: free)
and I habe 128 MB ram and 100 MB swap! There is something wrong here!
