I've had something similar, compiling a big project on the Freerunner with swap enabled, wifi on.
Before I started, some RAM was free, after it finished (about 6h), and I closed all programs to match the previous state, the system was much less responsive, RAM was nearly full and 50MB of swap was used. All programs seemed to have normal reserved memory footprints.

The above details are not to be trusted, I could have overlooked something important.

Maybe it has something to do with memory fragmentation? Or maybe it's sd-related?
