[SunHELP] "Overlapping swap files are not allowed" -- what gives?

The error that you are getting is due to system trying to add the swap a
second time

/sbin/swapadd defaults to checking if the swap is already mounted unless
passed 1 (-1) as an argument

I would scratch around and find where swapadd is been called and with what
arguments and what the current mount status of the swap is at that point in
