This might be worth a try:
cat < `which mozilla` > /dev/null
cat < `which evolution` > /dev/null
cat < `which rxvt` > /dev/null
cat /usr/lib/libc.so* > /dev/null
This will certainly speed up startup times by caching the text pages, so
for heavy-on-the-text binaries (as opposed to lots-of-RAM-
allocated-after-startup ones) it may help in the already-started case.
The swap trick sounds pretty neat though BTW. But if you're running
other crons it could be risky...
