I think our best bet for solving this is to get help from upstream.
Please test 3.2.4-1 from unstable or newer, and if it reproduces the
bug, file a report at <http://bugzilla.kernel.org/>, product ACPI,
component Power-Fan and let us know the bug number so we can track it.
Be sure to attach output from "acpidump", "grep . /sys/class/thermal/*/*"
before and after hibernating, and "dmesg" after hibernating (as
separate attachments, uncompressed).
Thanks and hope that helps,
