I already replied to Pavels similar comment - I had posted on Bugzilla.
I guess it missed the right people because it started off in the wrong
category. (The first symptom I reported was my 2.13Ghz cpu running at
1Ghz after a sucessful hibernation cycle). At Rafaels request, I shall
be retesting with the latest 2.6.25-rc kernel on Saturday. I look
forward to getting it fixed - I know it should be possible because it's
a regression.
