I can reproduce this (QtMoko v52 kernel 3.7.0-gta04-qtmoko-v52).
I had my device up and running (well mostly suspended of course) for a
few days and I see a difference in the output of dmesg between resumes
that are caused by a call and those caused by the power-button:

At those resumes that are caused by a call (and NOT on those caused by
the button) I see this additional line in dmesg:

Unhandled fault: imprecise external abort (0x1c06) at 0xbee30d60

Or similar. The address at the end of the line changes.
And the two times I tested this I always got a non-working QtMoko on the
third call.
