I am on an old laptop with Ubuntu 9.10 installed. I once tried to not shutdown but got into one of the resume states. On the next power on, resume did not work, but there was an error message during boot asking me for the resume image (which I do not have or know of) and when I press enter the normal boot happens.
This error now pops up on every boot. How can I restore the previous behaviour? Why does the boot process guess there would be a resume image and how can I delete this information?
I would like to post here the error messages from the boot process, but they are not in /var/log/syslog, where else might they be?
Here's a screenshot of the boot screen where it hangs:
$ sudo ls -la /dev/mapper drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 80 2010-03-18 19:37 . drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 3400 2010-03-18 19:45 .. crw-rw---- 1 root root 10, 60 2010-03-18 19:35 control brw-rw---- 1 root disk 252, 0 2010-03-18 19:37 cryptswap1
This is the tail of my /boot/grub/menu.lst:

I already added noresume. But this not what I see as the boot screen. And the first entry of my boot screen has no "noresume" and still does try the resume (which does not work). Why does grub not use this list?
Edit 3: When I edit the boot entry manually during boot (with "e") and append "noresume" this works fine. But only once.
