Duane, there have always been issues with this aspect of APM.  I
have found it sufficient to run two X servers to handle the issue.
Most of my software runs in an X session without DRI enabled and
then when I want to run accelerated 3D I just start up another X
session with DRI enabled.

For example, this can be done by running the following command from
an xterm in the first (normal, non-DRI session):

startx -- :1 -xf86config XF86Config.dri &

I've got DRI enabled in the XF86Config.dri file (which just resides
under /etc/X11 along side the default config file) and this command
starts up an X session on ttyv9 (alt-ctrl-F10).  Be sure that you
use a different window manager in your .xinitrc if you use either
Gnome or KDE!!

When I want to suspend, I just shut down the accelerated X session
and then when I resume I can start it back up again without ill

I hope this helps!
