What's the lease time you get from DHCP? Is the lease expiring while you
suspend, then trying to renew it before the network is reset? If so, and if
you have any control of the DHCP server, maybe you can just lengthen the
least times so it's unlikely to expire while you're suspended. ifplugd
might help - so that it issues an IFUP only _after_ knowing the link is
present (it'll also take the link down deliberately on suspend).
