Recent kernels don't play well with suspend-to-disk

Kernels since kernel-PAE- up to and incuding 
kernel-PAE- seem to have a problem with suspend-

Why do I say this? Two behaviors. First, up until the most recent 
kernel, I get non-fatal kernel errors that resulted in a spew of error 
messages to each active terminal window, sometimes accompanied by a 
notice that kerneloops has sent off a report. This, of course, after 
one or more resume-from-disk. Reboot cures the problem temporarliy. The 
most recent kernel failed toresume-from-disk in the boot process, 
freezing up with a bunch of page fault errors. (Yes, I know I shoud 
have copied/saved all of this). The only variable here appears to be 
the kernel rebooting with makes the problem vanish.

Obviosuly there's not enough here to debug the problem. The fact that 
its not going away suggests that the kerneloops reports are 

So, (a) anyone else having the problem? (b) suggestions for gathering 
enough data to make a Bugzilla report worthwhile?
