Yes, there are known problems with USB; you should have all USB modules removed from the kernel during suspension.  Also, you can try turning on debug (needs to be compiled in, and can be activated through /proc/swsusp/)  For me (2.6.1-rc1 with rc3I), the progress bar progresses at a relatively constant rate; it takes my box about 15-25 seconds (512 megs of mem, 768 megs of swap space, 1400MHz proc)

You may want to check the mailing list archives for usage documentation (subject "Test patch 2L.", Thu, 04 Dec 2003 18:39:13 +1300).  The docs on the website may be up-to-date now as well (swsusp.sourceforge.net)
