| The scenario, as I understand it, is this:
| 1. Freerunner gets into suspend (either manually or after some time);
| 2. Freerunner is put into bag;
| 3. GSM ping gets the phone out of suspend;
| 4. Freerunner is still in the bag (and you're walking to/from work),
| so its touchscreen prevents further suspends.

You and Arne are quite right, suspend is subject to random wakes from
GSM world too at the moment and that can lead to the same result.
Carsten wants to deal with wakes in his daemon so we're waiting on that.
