Actually this bug applies to all kernels as far back as early 2.3 afair.

I believe this would be the referenced patch.

Please add 'APM resume returns the machine to the first tty, crashes X' This
appeared w/ test8. If this is intended, I'd be very happy to know if so and
I can write in to xfree86 about it. If not intended..fix needed.

This one can tentatively be moved into 'fixed' I was one of the people
submitting this a long time ago and since that point in time numerous updates
have occured and I'm now able to transfer multi-gigs of data day after day

I use ppp frequently w/ current kernels, works fine.

Hmm, upgrade cdrecord perhaps? I'm using the second to last release and I'm
not burning coasters. cdrecord is undergoing a scsi subsystem rewrite.

Related to pcmcia, no, not fixed. Certain mixes of drivers and hardware can
stick the interrupt until they're removed and a different card inserted.
