the problem goes away.

Also, if I lower multimode to "8", the problem seems to go away. (The
newer kernels set it to the drive's maximum of 16.) With multimode
set to 16, the drive does work fine, until I suspend it for the first

I'm not sure if the problem is with a buggy APM implementation in the
