That's actually an X bug -- changing the terminal from X to a text 
console causes the X event buffer to be locked for some time while it 
thinks your enter key is held down, and it counts one press for every 
interrupt taken during the terminal switch.

If you want to run pm-suspend directly from a terminal in X, you should 
basically do:

sleep 1 ; pm-suspend --quirk-vbestate-restore ...
