Thanks for the info Steve!

I would think the manual resume option appropriate definitely for the
"suspend" option...but not really the syslog.

Is there a reason to not have it reset if the space is freed?

So if eventually I need to patch this, would you:
1: accept a change?
2: also want another parameter like "autoresume_on_space_free = false"
to preserve this behavior?
