[CentOS] cache memory not being used

Since I upgraded to 4.2 it looks like the cache memory doesn't go over
about 70K or so. I have over 700K free and it started using swap,
which doesn't normally happen for a few days or so. Any hints on what
might be up?

 This is just after a compile and the cached is only 75k
total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       1032848     263992     768856          0       4612      75628
-/+ buffers/cache:     183752     849096
Swap:      1052248      18260    1033988

On a side note, anyone able to have Xorg running for more then 14
days? It consumes about 750megs after 14 days or so.
