My kernel is 2.2.5-15, /dev/hdc1 was configured as swap and the system had
been running fine for a long time (15 months), till now.
Of late, the system was crashing from time to time, about twice a week,
but rebooting fine (after running fsck).
So I have my suspicions on the VM now.
Friendly advice: May be a good idea to leave some of the earlier tracks in
the hdd unused, now that disk storage comes cheap.
/dev/hdc1 swap swap defaults 0 0

ARGHHHH! I hope you're joking!! PLEASE. You can use a partition as swap
partition or as file system (like ext2). If you use a partition as swap
space OF COURSE it will be overwritten by swapped data! It's the normal
behaviour for the first time when notion of 'swap partition' born.
