Are there known issues with APM in 2.0.3x? I've got a Nec Versa 6000H
notebook that has recently had an annoying tendancy to lockup, most
frequently right after exiting minicom, though sometimes while in X not
doing anything in particular. Since battery life sucks, I'd hate to make
it worse by giving up APM. I think the Versa is running either 2.0.32 or
2.0.31-pre10. I've already checked and eliminated the obvious (irq
conflict on the serial port...there isn't one).
