That's a open-vm-tools issue. Could you try to remove open-vm-tools
and use the vmware version to check whether it's kernel-vm or open-vm-tools

I don't have Fusion (hint :D )

On the plain vmware guest (CentOS-5 x86_64 desktop), suspend guest on vmware
server VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.i386 works out of the box (no vmware-tools
inside the guest).

It's should go to CentOS-virt (see you there).

You can open a bug entry for centos and one for vmware
since it's a commercially supported product (if you ca duplicate
it with the default vmware tools).
