Something did happen today that would be explained by the modem crashing: I 
could not receive or place phone calls after the phone woke from suspend with 
a "running conversation"

In some more detail: 
- I received a phone call (first incoming since boot, had outgoing already)
- Calling party hung up 
- I didn't pay attention and put the phone away
- close to two hours later I woke the phone to make a call
- the "phone" dialog was running, with at that moment some 1:45 hour of 
- I closed the connection and tried to make calls to several numbers
- later I heard I could not be reached at that time either.
- the battery was running flat by then

Two more things to mention: 
- My wife complained about me being hard to understand, and I had difficulties 
hearing her as well. It turned out I had been playing with the screen 
rotation, and held the phone 180 degrees rotated to my ear... :-P
- Not being able to make or receive phonecalls, I shut down the phone to 
replace the battery. "uptime" gave 8:45 hours of uptime. That is on a single 
battery with no recharging in between. That's almost "mainstream", is it not? 

Sorry I won't be able to check the reaction after dialing in and hanging up,.. 
Household is calling (I thought to give it a try, but networkmanager is 
interfering and kicking down the link every 30 seconds... :-(
