It's not a Qt Extended issue. If you would put 4.4.2 on the rootfs that came 
with 4.4.1, you would most likely not see this suspend problem.

Qt Extended has nothing to do with how a phone suspends other than telling it 
when to suspend itself, or how the device wakes up. The modem is responsible 
for waking up the phone up when there is an incoming call or message.

But the appearance is that Qt Extended 4.4.2 has a suspend problem.
