That should not be necessary.  And would break a very normal system
setup of using separate drives, even more so than the blasted can't have
a separate /usr thing that happened recently.

I've used separate home drives, in the past, as a very simple way of
being able to safely update a server without any chance of screwing up
user data.  Others have used separate swap drives as a way of speeding
up swap, should you ever be stuck with having to make use of it.  It's
bad enough to have to use a drive for swap space, without having to put
up with the thrashing of alternating between swapping and everything
else it's trying to access on the drive.

Anyway, I note the original poster says they've solved their problem.
