That's a feature. If you are booting from live CD, you _want_ to erase

it's been stated that doing a std and booting another OS (including
windows) is a valid and common useage. saying that if you boot another OS
you trash your suspended image doesn't sound reasonable.

If you hibernate your machine, boot from live cd, and change anything
on any filesystem, you are pretty likely to loose that filesystem.

booting from a live CD doesn't mean that you are going to mount the filesystem, let alone change it. but swap is not supposed to be this sensitive.

Doing that with Windows is okay as Windows do not usually write to
ext3 partitions.
