[maemo-users] OOM-Killer is active on Nokia 770 despite >128mb of free swap

I would like to use my Nokia 770 running OS2008HE as home server,
running debian wheezy (with a recompiled eglibc for linux-2.6.16
However, despite 256mb swap (swappiness=1) the OOM killer frequently
kills processes.

Was the Nokia 770 kernel patched with some kind of "enhanced" memory management?
Are there any known work arrounds, so that the sum of all processes
may exceed the amount of available ram?

Thank you in advance, Clemens
