you can read the boot log in /var/log I'm using debian unstable as well.
though I'm using a 2.6 test 11 custom complied kernel
Yep it is. I have a 2.6.0-test11 branch as well, but the behaviour seems to be the same? Are you trying to tell me that wake-on-lan works for you after power down from linux? Are you in the position to test if Wake-on-LAN works for you?
I have failed a bug against this issue btw:
[offtopic]I built a 2.6.0-test11 kernel with the forcedeth patch, currently reading if it is possible to use my nvidia gfx card with 2.6
