Suspend broken for kernel "2.6.20-1.2932.fc7"

Description of problem:
After ugrading the kernel on a "IBM ThinkPad T23" to "2.6.20-1.2932.fc7",
"suspend" is broken. It is possible to suspend the system but upon
resume, a single line is issued to the console, namely:
"Stopping tasks ... done." before the screen goes blank, and the system
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system w/kernel "2.6.20-1.2932.fc7".
2. Suspend system by clicking "suspend" button of "GNOME" system menu.
3. Press power button to resume.
System issues "Stopping tasks ... done." and hangs afterwards.
System resumes normal operation.
Downgrading system to kernel "2.6.19-1.2914.fc7" allows to recover a
functional suspend mode. The kernel got broken some time last week
but I am unable to tell when the breakage occurred exactly.
Fixed in "kernel-2.6.20-1.2936.fc7". Btw, by successive trial, it turned
out that the bug has been introduced in a kernel package later than
"kernel-2.6.20-1.2925.fc7" which also works.
