s2ram resume doesn't restore previous console state

Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: The bug is there from beginning.
Distribution: PLD/Linux Th
Hardware Environment: Thinkpad Z60m 2529FKG
Software Environment: suspend-0.8-0.20071029.1.i686
When using s2ram then after resume console isn't set back to original state. It appears to be "bigger" than physical screen so for example you need to press enter several times for latest entered text to be visible on screen.
Running "service console restart" sets console back to proper state. Probably reset(1) would also "fix" console (didn't test this one).
There are some unfinished patches to handle this:
but probably fixing this in kernel would be nicer.
Steps to reproduce:
see the console
Well, I haven't seen these symptoms so far.
What kind of console do you use?
font ter-v14n (termites from http://www.is-vn.bg/hamster/jimmy-en.html)
Do you use default font or some custom one? Try custom/nonstandard one.
Hm, I always use the default font. Well ...
For now, I have no idea how to fix it.
are you using Intel graphics?
if yes, please update to the latest kernel, retry with i915 driver loaded/built in, does the problem still exist?
No, radeon mobile x600.
It seems that this is a drm issue related with radeon graphics driver.
How about assign this to the drm category?
It's not drm related because it happens on pure text console with no X.
seems like a console problem. :)
I sthis still a problem. If it is could you please post your dmesg output and your kernel config file.
