In fact, I had installed hibernate; gnome power manager calls this
command to do the suspend.

It turned out that I had had a typo in my hibernate.conf file
(I had added something to try to help with a network problem
after suspending), so when gnome power manager called
hibernate, it effectively died with a syntax error, without
logging this anywhere that I can see. When I learned that it's
hibernate that g-p-m is calling, I called it from the command
line, saw the error, and fixed the problem, and now I'm back
with a working suspend.

Thanks, and thanks to the linux-thinkpad list, which pointed me
in the right direction.
