Were you running pm-suspend directly or through a session power

pm-utils no longer uses HAL -- it manages the video quirk database
directly.  HAL is in the process of going away, and pm-utils 1.3.0 took
over managing the quirks database.  However, if whatever is invoking
pm-utils is passing quirks to it, that will override whatever is in the

Sure -- if you can send me the /var/log/pm-suspend log from when it
breaks and when it works, that would help.

You can also override the local quirks database by running

pm-suspend --quirk-none --store-quirks-as-lkw

If that does The Right Thing on your system,
send /etc/pm/last_known_working.quirkdb to me and I will update the
native quirk database.
