I do not have many apps installed (~40), only 1 screen with 3 widgets, and I check regularly with a task killer that I have enough free memory (always more than ~100MB).
Could it be because the sd-card (Transcend 32GB class 4) is "slower" than the internal memory? I guess there is no fix for this, as if I want the extra space it is the tax to pay.
As long as you're not actually using the task killer to constantly kill apps then it's ok...
I wouldn't worry too much about the free memory, remember Android memory works differently. It's meant to be full, learn to stop monitoring it constantly. Therefore you might as well uninstall the task killer anyway.
sd card speed will be generally slower yes, but depends how the script works, like I say I'm not sure. If it moves any app data to sd-ext, this can cause slow downs.
It's best to keep app data (saved game data, app settings etc) on your actual /data partition, both for speed and stability. Use the sd-ext for app apks and dalvik cache.
You could check with something like 'DiskUsage' how the script works.
For app space with CM7 personally I would full wipe, install the ROM on cm7r2 hboot, and use a different app/script like S2E or Darktremor A2SD. Use one of them to automatically move apps and dalvik cache to sd-ext, keep app data on internal (/data). It won't necessarily look your internal memory has increased (will read only 287MB), but the sd-ext will be working as it should.
