hmm.  those all seem to work, so i guess the problem is somehow in the
configuration of the gnome "log out button" on my system.  quite
possibly there's some cruft left over from long-ago attempts to make
suspend work on this laptop back in the dark ages when nothing worked by
default.  so, probably the bug is of my own making.  but matt, can you
tell me what package owns those logout functions, and what the chain is
that leads to a suspend cycle being enacted?  I can commit to
documenting all this somewhere inn the wiki so that others don't have
the same befuddlement.  but i'd also like to be able to use the gui
buttons again, if only to stop my family members from guffawing about
how user-unfriendly linux is.  

thanks again,
