        My laptop frequently (i.e., at least one time in three) crashes
        after resuming from a suspend activity.  Usually, the problem
        is file-system related, and automatic fsck can't cope.

        I run fvwm, which creates named pipes and Unix-domain sockets
        under /var/tmp (e.g., /var/tmp/
        is a named pipe; I see Unix-domain sockets in /var/tmp/orbit-smb).
        Often -- and I don't know why; I'll be send-pring separately on
        this point -- X exits during the resume.  The i-nodes for these
        "files" are listed as unallocated, or with duplicate blocks.  I've
        been unable to get a crash dump; when I try, I get things like
        page faults during the dump.  I suspect, though, that there's data
        queued that isn't emptied because of an abnormal exit.
        Suspend/resume a bunch of times...
        Unknown -- and it's bad enough that I've stopped carrying my
        NetBSD laptop on trips.
