I had 1G of RAM in this machine, and when I try to load too much into JOSM I 
get an out of memory error. There is 2G of swap active.
JOSM makes no use of the swap and does not give the OS time to swap out any 
thing else.

I just put in another 1G of RAM. JOSM is using up to 1G and not touching the 
second 1G at all, then giving an out-of-memory error. This happens with swap 
use at zero if the machine has not been running long.

Can anyone give me some pointers?
Java upgrade?
JOSM problem?
