Sorry about that top post.  I wasn't thinking.

I've just realized while the plymouth lock-up can't have anything to do
with this, the other lock-up (after resume) seems to mostly involve
firefox having the focus.

Hmmm, I might try not using Firefox for a while and see if the crashes

There was a recent mesa bug that seemed to involve firefox and compiz
and I can't help but wonder if there isn't still some issues here too.

Any suggestions how I could get useful debug for this.  Xorg.log.0.old
and /var/log/messages don't have anything useful.
