Hmmm, possibly the upgrade forgot to install a packaged called (wait
for it) "hibernate"?

I installed the package, and aptitude took the opportunity to get rid of
a lot of packages. I hope they were all old, obsolete packages. I guess
I will find out.

In the process of doing that, I got this message:

Setting up hibernate (1.99-1.1) ...

Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-22-generic
cryptsetup: WARNING: found more than one resume device candidate:
cryptsetup: WARNING: target cryptswap1 has a random key, skipped

Actually they are all the same device, but the software wouldn't
necessarily know that.

Still no menu entry, but I may have to log out and in again to get it
