I have noticed the defunct xset processes, too, but suspend (usually)  
works for me, so I don't think that not suspending is caused by this.  
(I'm using SHR unstable, relatively current, I didn't do today's  
update due to file collisons in imlib2-loader).

Not only you, I have experienced the same. It seems that as long as  
you're not properly registered to a network the GSM related apps  
(Cellhunter, Dialer, Contacts, Phonelog, SMS) do crash if they are  
started before ophonekitd has registered to the network. I usually  
wait until the bars appear in the top bar, which usually indicates to  
me that GSM functionality is available. I think the same is true if  
ophoned crashed (which hasn't happened anymore for some weeks now).
