Oversized auxiliary file systems in Dapper; why?

When I want to check the available space on my hard disk, I get the
urtzi at escher:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 5.0G 3.5G 1.3G 74% /
varrun 248M 88K 248M 1% /var/run
varlock 248M 4.0K 248M 1% /var/lock
udev 248M 140K 248M 1% /dev
devshm 248M 0 248M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3 64G 43G 18G 71% /home
I am quite surprised by the four 248-MB filesystems. I have checked quite
often, and these filsystems are never more than 1% full.
How can I tweak the system to remove or make them smaller (I mean, does udev
need 250 MB to work at all?)? Do I actually need all of them?
If it has to be like that, I'd like to know how do I get in exchange for
losing a whole GB of disk space! ;-)
It just occurred to me: maybe these four systems are another way to display
the swap partition? I have a 1 GB swap at /dev/hda2, but I can't see it here.
Thanks in advance,
