JFTR I'm suffering the vary same issue, from time to time, my laptop starts to swap like mad making it totally unresponsive. I normally kill the WebProcesses and that fixes the issue. Didn't try to kill NetworkProcess, next time I'll give it a try.

Anyway I don't have additional data sorry, just wanted to state that it isn't an Andres-only issue.

PS: one interesting thing is that, I need to change to console mode to kill the processes as the UI (GNOME) is totally frozen. When I manage to do that, then the swapping stops. If I switch back to desktop then the swapping is resumed.
