I think this was the hint I needed.  I reconfigured my ethernet 
interface to use a static address rather than DHCP, and the problem 
cleared up.  Thanks, Terry!

I don't think I'd have ever thought of that.  Watching the logs during a 
suspend, I could see that the ethernet device was suspended before a 
number of other things happened. I didn't really pay attention to the 
fact that dhclient was suspended by one of the pm-utils scripts.
