I actually just had the same thing happen, only the entire console froze,
X and all. I don't know if the kernel was still working or not, I didn't
have another machine connected at the time. However, this is actually an
improvement for me - the ohci1394 module doesn't lock the PMU up and cause
the system to suddenly shutdown (this is a FireWire iBook). If I boot the
system with the FireWire device - a QPS CD-RW drive - plugged in, all is
Ben? The FireWire controller didn't seem to have a problem with power
management per se - I ran 'gscanbus' after a suspend/unsuspend cycle, and
it seemed to be ok with that.
