What metric are  you using for determining that physical ram is 
"180-200MB of use"?

Keep in mind also, that once something has been swapped out, it will 
stay in swap for as long as it hasn't been modified. There might also be 
a copy in RAM. This means that if that same memory is to be swapped out 
again, the system can just delete the copy in ram, since it already 
exists in swap.
