I forwarded it to fedora-ppc at lists.infradead.org too.

Since I started using the previous patch and actually suspending, I've
been seeing the GNOME panel and window list die frequently, and
occasionally other X apps. When X apps have died which were started from
the command line it seemed to be a spurious SIGPIPE, strangely.

I don't _think_ I've ever seen it immediately after booting; only after
suspend/resume. But that could be just a coincidence. Likewise the way
it started when I added the sleep patch _could_ just be a coincidence --
I was still running Fedora rawhide and updating other packages (and
there were other kernel changes) at that time, so a lot of other things
changed too... but has anyone else seen similar behaviour?
