		It resizes or creates a file ".swap" on the memory card.
Could be you

it can't touch

	I checked the /media/mmc1 directory and I do not have a .swap
file there. The problem is still unresolved.

It is hard to tell. Best would be to describe the problem in finer
detail (e.g. do you get the error message immediately or after some
activity being show, etc.) In general, a bug report would be a good
place to follow this:
component general, assign it to me or at least notify me of the bug
number ;)
