gdb bt -f output
I had not had this problem since I originally opened bug #517625,
but it occurred again. I attach the output of gdb backtrace, and
strace -p as requested.
Update package versons:
No doubt others of the packages have been updated, but these seem the salient ones.

strace -p output
I have truncated the output since there were thousands of lines all the same
Do you happen to have your kernel log from when this issue occurred? The output of the dmesg command while the machine is hung would be perfect, /var/log/messages will do otherwise.

/var/log/messages during suspend/resume
Ok, there was no mention of suspend/resume prior to this? The problem doesn't occur without using it?
