Why CF are cards always "ejected" at suspension?

This happens with my IBM 340MB microdrive... but not with my 1gig CF Flash. It seems from reading the above that this is a microdrive issue.

Alas this problem also occurs with my 256 MB Kingston CF card, both on an SL-C860 and SL5500, so it must be CF card device-specific.  I wonder why some CF cards eject but not others?

I agree on the time needed for mounting the swap every time, this is why I would prefer to have it always on!
I could craete a big swap on the SD I have always in, but I have read that sd cards risk to be "consumed" very quickly with all the read/writes a swap requires ; and it would be Waaay slower than the microdrive!

Are you saying that SD cards are much slower than CF?

I have the eject/insert problem with my Maxell 64Mb CF Card (not a microdrive)- I would like to have it in all the time, but the eject/insert on resume adds an extra 8 seconds to my resume time, and it seems to cause stability issues.

Hi all. I was discussing this problem with lardman in this tread until he pointed me here. It seems I'm having the same problem with a Lexar High Speed (32x) SD card. So it doesn't seem restricted to just CF items.

Does anybody know if the 2.6 kernel will definitely fix this? There's currently a thread on what's happening with 2.6 & the possibility of it getting into OZ 3.5.3, so I for one am looking forward for that.
GROG!
