[Bug 93039] Re: Regression: resume from disk (hibernate) fails sometimes

After a bit more testing, it seems that the cycle is something like

1.  Swap and everything is working.
2.  I hibernate the system successfully.
3.  I boot the system, and it resumes from hibernation successfully.
4.  I hibernate the system successfully again.
5.  I boot the system again, but it doesn't even try to load the swsusp image.  It boots "normally," runs fsck to fix the not-cleanly-unmounted filesystems, and fails to activate the swap partition since it has a swsusp signature, not a normal swap signature.
6.  I go through steps 1-5 in my last comment to reenable hibernation and swap.
7.  I reboot just to make sure everything is hunky dory with the new kernel initrd.
8.  Go back to step 1.

So basically, hibernation works, but resuming only works the first time.
I have no idea why.  I would be glad to help debug this.

Please mark this bug as confirmed and give it the appropriate priority.
It would be a shame for Feisty to be released with this as well.
