This has been covered once or twice, but MAX_SWAP_FILE is computed based on
your cache size and store_avg_object_size. The best solution is probably
to take a look at your cache's characteristics using cachemgr.cgi and
compute an appropriate value for store_avg_object_size. I've had
reasonable success just cutting the value in half, from the default of 20
to 10.
