Regarding SMS, I tripped over something on the weekend that appears to
have solved it for me so far - more testing needed.

I noticed that the batget program often had multiple instances that
"blocked" for some time, especially after resume.  I killed them and
suspended, and an SMS arrived and everything worked!  This is such a
very very rare event that I sent/received a dozen or so messages over
the weekend without problems - the phone woke from suspend everytime and
qtmail started up fine.

batget works with the battery icon on the shelf, so this stops working
after a "kill batget".  To keep batget from starting, use the "spanner"
to remove the battery module.

I surmise that on resume, the FR is so busy with programs like batget
that messages are dropped - depending on your software fit, may effect
some more than others.

Be nice to have it confirmed so its worth raising a bug?
