I do not see such a process:

I have just restarted the java program as it used to hold 224M but it did
not help (and it is quite stable and never given me any problem). After
using Squirrel Mail for some time swap use went down to 71%

Mem: 258M Active, 49M Inact, 108M Wired, 16M Cache, 60M Buf, 61M Free
Swap: 512M Total, 440M Used, 71M Free, 86% Inuse

Thank you very much for your suggestion Kris!
