thanks to those who have offered up their experiences.  i see that there 
is an open 'moko tracker related to this issue at , and an FSO tracker explicitly 
about it at .

i found some interesting things with testing yesterday, which seem to 
point much lower than paroli.  once my phone stops suspending on 
power-button-push, "apm --suspend" wakes straight back up with "device or 
resource busy", and any attempt to talk to the modem to find out what it's 
doing with mickeyterm fails with

root at tom-gta02:~# mickeyterm
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/mickeyterm", line 520, in <module>
     port = iMuxer.AllocChannel( "mickeyterm.%d" % os.getpid() )
   File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/", line 68, in __call__
     return self._proxy_method(*args, **keywords)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/", line 140, in __call__
   File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/", line 622, in call_blocking
     message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freesmartphone.GSM.MUX.NoChannel: All channels are used

once i get home and near a browser with my tracker credientials stored, 
i'll put them into the FSO tracker (the 'moko tracker has a pointer to it, 
thanks to khiraly).  may i encourage others who are having the problem to 
add their experiences to the FSO tracker?  and if anyone has any ideas 
about how to diagnose this further, maybe pop them in there, too?

i should also thank Laszlo KREKACS, who was working on this and sent me 
modified .py files to try generating more log information.  they stopped 
my phone working, so i had to back them out, but i know he's looking at 
the problem.
