So you haven't noticed it is impossible to hibernate your laptop using the 
uuid system?  Other than this is the noise of several threads on this 
maillist, I have about the same amount on four others.  The best advise is to 
not use hibernate or edit fstab to use the old system.  Either way it is not 
the most excellent advise to give someone!  It is not win win if it is 
broken.  It needs fixed so the OS can see it has a swap partition or 
hibernate will not work.  I have however, grown used to not using it and 
using suspend instead.  You are correct however, if one does not use UUID he 
has to update his fstab every kernel update.
