sleep broken, again; thanks to xorg? gnome-core?

Today is the second day in which I find that my laptop does not resume properly from sleep and I start to wonder why. None of he old problems, blank screen, no reponse...

This time it just looses the GNOME session. I saw two segfaults on the console, on resume: one from iceweasel and one from another app. Then gdm comes up.

I think is xorg's fault or gnome-core. Why? Well, it didn't happened 4
days ago and I have these in the dpkg.log (grepped for upgrades only):

I'll turn back time with snapshot.debian.net and see if I get back my resume ...


Notes:
  • I use Etch, almost no packages from Sid or Experimental...
  • no, I didn't submit a bug yet; although this is not RC from Debian's PoV, it sure feels like this kind of regression shouldn't happen...

gnome-core is just a meta-package, no code changes there.

xorg is just a metapackage as well. There's nothing there. I don't know what could have caused your probelm though.

When I said gnome-core and xorg I was thinking about some deps being pulled in (gnome libraries, xorg deps, things of that sort) ;-).

There were some of those:

2007-03-12 00:17:53 upgrade libx11-dev 2:1.0.3-5 2:1.0.3-6
2007-03-12 00:17:54 upgrade libx11-data 2:1.0.3-5 2:1.0.3-6
2007-03-12 00:17:56 upgrade libx11-6 2:1.0.3-5 2:1.0.3-6
2007-03-12 00:18:02 upgrade x11-common 1:7.1.0-13 1:7.1.0-15
2007-03-13 03:10:34 upgrade libeel2-data 2.14.3-3 2.14.3-4
2007-03-13 03:10:35 upgrade libnautilus-burn3 2.14.3-8 2.14.3-8+b1
2007-03-13 03:10:35 upgrade libnautilus-extension1 2.14.3-9 2.14.3-11+b1
2007-03-13 03:10:36 upgrade nautilus 2.14.3-9 2.14.3-11+b1
2007-03-13 03:10:37 upgrade nautilus-data 2.14.3-9 2.14.3-11


ACPI could have been a suspect:

2007-03-12 00:18:21 upgrade acpi-support 0.90-2 0.90-4


But it seems the issue went away with a reboot (probably init ramfs issue coupled with acpi-support). Don't know.

I'll keep on eye on this in the future.
