It seems to me it's not. I used "stable" for some time and seen the
same issue. Now i switched to andy-tracking and it's just the same
(though suspends now seems to be faster). The FSO issues several
commands to the GSM modem prior to suspending, if they fail, it
doesn't try to enter suspend. The suspend should work, it can be
checked by "echo mem > /sys/power/state" (though it will resume
shortly and consume more energy than needed, because of the GSM). Also
i'm always able to suspend again after restarting gsm0710muxd (by
exiting Zhone, in example) or killing the whole frameworkd along with

But you are right, it's time to try the new kernel, as FSO works ok
with it (minor modifications necessary, reported on fso trac).
