The rule of thumb for determining the minimal amount of swap space is:

at least 3 times core RAM.

That means, for a workstation with 640MB core RAM you need _AT LEAST_
1920MB swap. which you can probably safely round up to 2048MB.

Running out of swap on 640MB core with 1GB swap is not surprising at
