I also see this occasionally. It does not happen on every suspend/resume
cycle. But for me it's always enogh to just rmmod and modprobe
appletouch. Just switch to a text console with ctrl-alt-f1, login as
root and type "rmmod appletouch ; modprobe appletouch".
My machine is a powerbook5,8 and I'm using 2.6.25-rc7 (self compiled).

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
