The patch apparently fixes the problem that I have reported, so thanks a lot,
Pavel. After it's been fixed, however, I often get things like that:

PM: snapshotting memory.
swsusp: critical section:

It's sort of strange, because there were 250 meg of RAM available, out of 500,
at that time.

Anyway I was able to suspend the machine after the above one had happened (I
stopped an app occupying some memory and then the box suspended), but then I
got a spectacular crash on resume (unfortunately I was unable to save the
trace, but I'll try to reproduce it).

Greets,
