Started programming Macs back when you needed a Lisa to do it. Switched to Unix about 10 years before Apple did. Now just a fanboy.

comment Mac virtual memory: how to make OS X create swap (page) files as freely with a normal boot as it does with a safe boot (swapfile1 etc)
Never heard that called 'mass' before. What causes OS to create more total swap space is more total active memory use, i.e. more need to swap data in and out of memory. It's a bad thing, but if you want to do it you can write a simple C program using mmap and MAP_ANON to eat up all the real memory, forcing everything else into swap.

comment Can I make unlocking the screensaver also unlock the login keychain?
This is not the problem, as I tried to indicate by saying "Yes, my login password and keychain password have been synchronized."

comment What might fix an installation of KeePass that won't copy or paste on OS X?
Have you tried KeyPass with Mono 3.0? I haven't tried it but it might work better.

@Sean, the link works for me today, but I added an archive link just in case. The solution is too involved to copy here.
