Since upgrading the kernel from suspend2-sources-2.6.17-r6 to suspend2-sources-2.6.18-r1 I regularly experience crashes when waking up from suspend2ram.
The error messages are attached in the file vesafb-tng_bug.log
I'm using the vesafb-tng driver and my notebook has a Geforce Go 6600 graphics chip in it, if that's of some help.

suspend2-sources have their own bugzilla: http://bugzilla.suspend2.net/index.cgi
O.K., I have to be more precise.
I can provoke such crashes from time to time also by manually switching from X to the console.
It's only that I can refrain from switching to the console while I'm working in X, but not when I resume. :)
Can you please try suspend2-2.6.19-r2, it has new version vesafb-tng.
I've emerged suspend2-sources-2.6.19-r1 (I guess you meant that revision, Alon) on Dec 22nd.
Switching from X to the console and back now works insofar that I don't experience a crash. The drawback is, however, that the console stays black.
The same situation is when I suspend and resume. It works reliably now, but I only see the progress bar when I use the suspend2ui_text program. When I specify suspend2ui_fbsplash the screen stays black and I can only tell from the HDD light that there's a suspend process going on.
I am not sure I can help you with the fbsplash.
I had a lot of trouble with vesafb-tng, switched to radeon and it works great.
I tried to use fbsplash with intel i810, and failed completely.
So I am closing this bug, since it is not suspend2 related.
I know it is suspend2-userui-fbsplash issue, but I don't think bernard will be able to fix it since it is vesafb-tng issue, which stopped working correctly with suspend since 2.6.16.
Sorry I cannot help more than asking you to use the text mode progress...
