Thanks Frank,

I shall wait for 5.3 I think as everything is working. I have been getting =
this error message more recently:

swap_pager_getswapspace: failed

which it likes to print a few dozen times every now and then. I shall have =
to upgrade sooner rather than later!

Cheers,=20
James

  Hi James,

  Looks like you've exercised a bug of some description. Assuming that
  it's not a showstopper, what I'd do in your position is wait for
  5.3-RELEASE (due anytime soon), cvsup and rebuild. Or if you don't want
  to wait for the release, cvsup to 5.3RC2, which will certainly be more
  solid than 5.1

  The handbook tells you how to do this:
