it was rc4, now it's 3.8.0-rc5. My fstab:

# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=187122e0-ad4a-4b27-8ec3-bb9217f162d0 /               ext4
errors=remount-ro 0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
#UUID=d1313f27-8580-490e-bec3-55ac44d64f0e none            swap    sw
           0       0
/dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0

ecryptfs should be the problem. I use an encrypted home and swap. "free"
says Swap: 0 0 0.
