This has now been reproduced on two devices, both N12/07rc3/N900.  Memory usage is full each time, also tried setting persist.swap.swappiness=60, however executing 'free' shows the swap size at 0.  Memory shows as close to full (~4000 free).

1. Boot into Maemo
2. Open X-Term (Ctrl+X)
3. Run 'vi /home/system/build.prop'
4. Press i to change to edit/insert mode
5. At the end of the file, add the following line:
6. Press 'esc', write ':wq'
7. Boot back into Nitdroid and you should be sweet
