kswapd infinite loop

I just hit an infinite loop in kswapd on a two way SMP system,
kernel test1-ac19. kswapd was using 100% of one of the processors.
I logged in a X session (automatically starting 4 xterms, xmms, gmix).
There was some heavy disk activity, I waited ~15 seconds, nothing new
so I switched to a VT. Started 'vmstat -n5' which showed me no swapping,
block IO. Eventually this settled but kswapd kept at 100% CPU usage.
