Still having a glance at memleaks:

    9 S     545M 35.6M 29.6  6.5 /hurd/ext2fs -A /dev/hd2

This seems a lot. And actually, killing it frees a couple of 100MiB swap
space.  AIUI, this means that some pages of ext2fs get swapped instead
of written back by ext2fs.  I can understand how that could happen if
ext2fs is quite busy and can't answer to gnumach requests fast enough,
but shouldn't there be a mechanism to clear this up when more memory is
available to perform it?
