ah.  That was my problem. Thanks!  My hibernate stopped working with
Flight 6, but I never made the connection that this is exactly when I
started using espresso for my installs.     Is there a bug report for
this?  I would like to mark mine (currently filed against the kernel)
a duplicate of it (

By the way, the "sudo update-initramfs" need a command line parameter;
I used "-u" for update and that seems to have worked.
