When put to sleep in a Gnome session, the T23 comes back with a 
messed-up text console (top half of it repeated chars, bottom half 
blinking red-green), and seemingly autistic - not pingable, consoles 
not switchable, typing has no effect on the display.

When put to sleep from the console, the consoles are garbled, too, 
and unusable, but typing changes chars, they are switchable, and vt5 
gives me a usable X display.

When I login to X after resume (2nd case above), everything seems to work.
