This looks like the problem I've been reporting since 2.5.5x . On my machine
(HP XE3GC) I get a rare chance that this happens.
One raw hack I have been using to get around that, is my 'sleep' script (for
/etc/init.d/ypbind stop #i.e. prepare the system
sleep 9 #allow me to lock the screen etc.

sync #This is where I reduce the chance I have dirty buffers
sleep 1 # calm down
echo 1 >/proc/acpi/sleep #sleep now

That won't fix the bug, of course, but shows what may go wrong..
