Package: swapd
Version: 0.2-10
Severity: important

unsigned long kswaps = 0;

in swapd.c
should be:
long kswaps = 0;

or other changes made.

currently swapd is not working at all if there is no other swap in the system.

it is because of these lines:
      kswaps = usedswaps();                                                                             
      if (mem < memlimit && (!maxswaps || kswaps < maxswaps)) {

usedswaps returns -1 (there is no other swap at start) which is converted to
huge unsigned value and compared to small one.
