Thanks, it's essentially identical to mine so no clues there.  I think it 
must be a 2.4.0 kernel issue.  I'll have to try a test setup on 2.2.x to 
verify this (I can't run 2.2.x all the time but I could temporarily use my 
swap partition as a test 2.2.x partition).

Suspend always has problems with sound in my experience.  It seems that the 
best thing to do is unload the module before suspend.

It works pretty well.  There are still some issues to be resolved, but all my 
most important data is on ReiserFS.
