[kde-solaris] Memory usage

Unfortunately increasing swap space is not as easy as that, it would involve
re-imaging well over 100 systems.  

I am also unsure as to why Stefan's swap -s shows a reserve of 96832K (which
is the level I would expect) while mine shows 251128k with much less

I'll dig around with pmap and recompile with gcc to see what I can find.

This is with 2 Konsole sessions, 2 xterms, one Konqueror File Manager, 
GKrellm and SuperKaramba.

Increase swap to 2GB -- Lars is very correct in what he is saying in 
his post. :-) I would also recommend against mounting swap on /tmp

Total swap will never increase beyond 400MB at most.
