before going the (hard) downgrade way, did you try using the free
"radeon" driver (or whichever is relevant for your card). I "fixed" a
computer crippled by the same problem yesterday, running an Ati
HD2600XT, and the result is so nice that the owner doesn't want to go
back to fglrx ! I just removed the xorg.conf file and rebooted, "fixed".
Of course your luck will depend on how well supported your hardware is,
but even without "3D" acceleration it would be a workaround, I read that
Ati is about to release a new driver, maybe this one will finally catch
up with xorg and kernel development (for now...).
