This is absolutely related to a late and unexpected change in 
xfce-session which oblige me to deal with a problem. I have to solve 
this problem, else several thousand Zenwalk users will kick me :)

This bug has been reported since ages : kernel devs don't seem to be 
working on it.

Try googling for "suspend alsa" , you'll see. Many users are facing this 

The best solution I could think of , would be to have an "option" in 
xfce-session that would stop the panel when suspend or hibernate are 
chosen, and restart it after resume . It would be cleaner, and wouldn't 
hurt people using pm-utils, who have the same problem.

In fact , it wouldn't hurt anyone imho.
