I'm experiencing the same behaviour, but I haven't yet managed to
discover the parameters which make the behaviour deterministically

For me: pbbuttonsd 0.6.2, kernel 2.6.7 (updated from 2.6.5).

BTW the most annoying fact about this pbbuttonsd is that when pbbuttonsd
crashes there's no way to get it up and running again without rebooting
the machine. "/etc/init.d/pbbuttonsd stop" doesn't work and after
manually -9-killing pbbuttonsd there's no way to start it again since it
complaints that another daemong is running even it that's not the case,
are there any hiddent pid/lock files I'm not aware of?

Another detail, which may be helpful, is that sometimes while shutting
down the machine after the pbbuttonsd crash while trying to put the
machine to sleep, the laptop enter the sleep just before the kernel
"power down" message. Then when I wake up the laptop the shutdown
procedure completes actually switching off the machine.
