Bingo!  Obvious work-around found!  That was it!  When I add "nomodeset"
to the grub kernel line, it suspends & resumes just fine.

Thanks!  That saves me from mucking with the suspend configuration
(which now doesn't need mucking with)!

Nope, a key-press worked fine for me.

Is this still "broken" in F12?  If so, it should be in the release notes
since its obviously also broken in F11....
