I did a test with swapoff -a today, which completely cleared swap space, yet
despite Conky reporting about 70'ish percent of overall RAM usage, so with
pretty good margin available, I couldn't launch any application, as it has
been kicked out with "Too many applications opened" message. Is there some
kind of internal maximum limit of memory usage beyond which launching any
app is refused?
