Xserver crash on resume

I'm using a tablet notebook with a rotable screen. A small (self written) 
daemon rotates the desktop if I rotate the display. All works fine, except I 
rotate the display while the notebook is in standby. On resume, the daemon 
makes the randr calls to rotate the desktop and X crashed with SEGV (using 
i810, 1.7.4 - Ubuntu Gutsy).

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

A simple sleep in my rotate function solved this issue. Is there a clean way 
to detect this resume phase and delay the randr calls?
