Something's wrong.  The top(1) output above indicates that only about 268 MB of 
physical memory exists (real + free) -- not 1 GB.

The system is also running very close to the swap limit (about 1.7 GB are 
active out of 2 GB).

Again, the above indicates that only about 270 MB of physical memory exists 
(real + free).

It's possible that one of more of the memory chips aren't seated correctly or 
are faulty.

It's also possible that top(1) is lying.  You can check this by executing, as 
root, the command "dmesg | less".  Search for "mem".

The operating-system apparently copies the memory-mapped product-queue into the 
swap file because the amount of in-use swap-space increases from about 690 MB 
to about 1.7 GB when the LDM is running.  I suspect that the operating-system 
is deciding that a larger product-queue can't be supported.  If dmesg(1) 
indicates that you, indeed, have 2 GB of physical memory, then I suggest 
increasing the size of the swap file.
