SubjectAPM, virtual console problem in 2.4.0

When suspending my laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1605CDS; BIOS set to
suspend to disk) with Debian 2.2r2's 'apm -s', the screen blanks
and then the system locks up hard (not even the power button works).
In 2.2.17, 'apm -s' works properly, first blanking the screen (maybe
twice), then (apparently) handing off to the BIOS. It looks like
the handing off isn't reached in 2.4.0; the screen blanks, but
it never reaches the BIOS's 'Saving to Disk' screen.
Additionally (included because of the similar symptomology), when
changing virtual consoles under 2.4.0 and running X (XFree86 3.3.6;
from Debian 2.2r0), the screen blanks once again, but then the system
lock up hard, exactly as above.
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong or what needs to be fixed? If
I get some time in the next few days, I'll look at the code; but
school's coming up and I have a lot of work to get done.
I can supply more information if you need it.
