I did, thanks - but you're comparing the wrong numbers.

The "Mem:" Used amount is 934844 and the "Swap:" Free is 297382 - so I have
about 3 times the physical memory available in swap.  Normally, it's much
tighter, but the Hardy upgrade force a few reboots, and much of what I'd
usually be running hasn't been started yet.
