comment Mac OS X with swap turned off uses 6 GB of space in a few hours of heavy use
I've accepted this answer as it pointed me to the right direction. The solution was to free few more GBs of the disk space (because of the Virtual Memory). OmniSweeper and Grand Perspective did the job.

@bmike It looks like that was a solution. Few days ago I've deleted app data of few apps and the system seems to work properly now.

comment Mac OS X with swap turned off uses 6 GB of space in a few hours of heavy use
Thank you for all the tips. I am aware of Google Chrome caching and I clear my cache from time to time (doesn't help much). I turned off swap just temporary, trying to find out if this would be a solution. I still believe it is a "problem" I haven't had such problem few months ago (with approx. same amount of free disk space). I'll try to free some more space using xSlimmer.

sleepimage file is 4.0G and the total 'System Memory' in Activity Console is also 4.0G (Free: 1.64 GB, 723.5 MB, 1.37 GB, 289.9 MB, 2.36 GB) - all after reboot.
