That means that swbuff.el is not loaded.  Something is wrong, and I'm
not able to tell you what based on the information you supply.

Like I said, I use swbuff-x (downloaded from the same URL), and I simply
use a (require 'swbuff-x).  Works for me.

No, it certainly isn't.  `provide' is put at the end of a file (elisp
library) so that that file/library may be loaded with `require', just as
you're attempting.  Putting it in ~/.emacs is like saying that ~/.emacs
contains the swbuff code, which is clearly wrong.
