Did you try enabling nbd swap to see if that helped? I agree that 128 is
pretty slim especially as cheap as ram has become in the last few
years . It was pretty slim even back with ltsp 4.

Writing that made me think, too, if anyone has tried putting the swap on
a ram disk or sees any effect after switching to ssd from hard drive?
