i too have noticed 2.4.5 severely slowing down during heavy disk i/o

bah. if you have 2Gigs of ram, requiring an additional 4Gigs of swap
is ridiculous. if you have 4M of ram, you will need a lot more than
8M of swap to run the latest widget set.

this is a rule of thumb that doesn't scale in either direction.
