Apparently this is solvable by using vbetool to save / restore the video
card state around suspending, i.e.:

# Switch to text mode screen
chvt 1

# save vbestate
vbetool vbestate save > /tmp/VBESTATE

# Actually suspend...
echo mem >/sys/power/state

# Should now be asleep, but possibly 'echo' returns before
# it has quite happened ...
sleep 1

# restore vbestate
vbetool post
vbetool vbestate restore < /tmp/VBESTATE
rm -f /tmp/VBESTATE

# Switch back to X
chvt 7

I'd be interested to know if this works - I haven't had the time to try
it out since I discovered the workaround...
