I had a similar problem that was fixed by the version of xorg-x11-drv-ati
in updates. The versions that have appeared in updates-testing since then
have broken things again. So if the one in updates fixes things for you,
you may want to save a copy somewhere in case it ends up being replaced
by a problem version later.
