What I meant is that the decision on whether to remove the "feature"
of running reportbug affected the resolution of the other one.

So I am going to remove reportbug and close that bug report, and then
investigate the other one.

I think that I saw more bug reports complaining about weirdness after
suspending.  It's possible even that the issue is with cwidget.
