Hi. We have reproduced the problem in our lab now. Apparently, it seems 
like the IGEL connection manager requires that applications have the X11 
property called "_NET_WM_PID" in order to terminate the application before 
suspend. The ThinLinc client currently does not set that property, but 
I've added a bug for that:
