Er, I'm using the current powerpc-utils (and pmud) in woody.  I did a
little bit of digging, and I _think_ the reason this happens is that pmud
tries to restore the trackpad settings before the device is probed (and
when probed again, it resets to the defaults).  This is why in my script
on wakeup i have a sleep 2 in there, so the device gets probed again.

On other machines, does a complete adb-reprobe happen on wakeup?  I'm
wondering if it's something new/different benh is doing..
