Had a look at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/stndalhd.txt?

  - Hibernation function does not work when OS/2 Boot Manager is
  - Hibernation function does not work with NTFS/HPFS file systems.
  - Hibernation by hibernation partition is not supported.
    Please do not select item 1. Create partition on this

I guess the third item could be the reason of the "misbehaviour" itself being 
caused by the "unordered" partitioning/partition numbering. IIRC hibernation 
shall work, I read something related a while ago (but can't remember any 
details anymore, sorry). Maybe you find something useful on
