Comment(by montgoss):

 I just noticed something.  It seems the reason/method of the resume has an
 effect on this issue.  In my debugging, I added scripts to
 /etc/apm/suspend.d/ and /etc/apm/resume.d/ that would unmount and remount
 my partitions.  This didn't seem to make any difference.  However, I'm
 currently in an area that has no cell signal and therefore doesn't get
 woken up by those pesky cell broadcast messages.  So, my Neo is waking up
 from pressing the power button only now.  When it does that, combined with
 the unmount/remount hack, the partition table is not affected.
