Trashing swap can have deleterious effects.
Authored by: macmath on Dec 16, '03 03:05:31PM

I was trying out some utility which offered to trash swap. I incorrectly assumed that it would not trash something in use, and let it do so. But it trashed all the swapfiles anyway. The computer locked-up after a bit. The swapfiles should not be trashed by the user. Panther will give back swapfiles itself sometimes, however.
