"resume: ..." problem solved.
Andrew & others,
asw> I"m betting its uswsusp that is the culprit.
Correct! Removed uswsusp with dselect and the
"resume: ..." complaint disappeared. The extant
initrd seems to work.
The message would be more helpful if it mentioned
uswsusp. I suppose this can be a bug report.
Probably I accepted the recommendation for uswsusp
consequent to selecting pm-utils.
Now I can return to incorporating the In-reply-to
parameter in the message header so that I'm not
always breaking threads.
Thanks, ... Peter E.
