Only way out is to "rm -rf .glameswap".

    We know this particular "bug". Another way to "fix" the
    problem is to fix the cause - i.e. make some space available
    on the partition the swapfile resides, the fsck process
    should fixup things then on the next startup.
    Unfortunately fixing this bug is rather hard...

    Probably won't fix this ever.
