Well, it may or may not change the problem you're seeing, but I just
wanted to point out that anyone using Radeon hardware, should always
have the driver set to "radeon" regardless of what other people out
there or FAQs might say.

You may still have a problem afterward, but if so, at least you know
it isn't caused by any of the additional and unnecessary codepaths
in the "ati" wrapper.  ;o)
