Hm, isn't 2740 tasks rather a lot?  What are most of them?  With a load 
average of 0.81 it looks like maybe you have a very large number of child 
processes spawned and waiting for something to do, but no data for them to 
work on.

Maybe try reducing the number of processes (to something like 100-200 max.) 
and see if your machine still uses up all its swap space.
