A mild one, but yes. It strikes me that a better solution would be to
figure out why suspend causes problems with X. I know it doesn't on
most machines -- works great on mine.
If you really need a more secure approach, maybe you can set up some
sort of daemon that can be prodded to remember the vt on suspend, and
can keep the # in memory, and regurgitate it on resume. But that seems
like an awful lot of work. Possibly more than debugging the X vs.
