emerging ~amd64 drivers (x11-drivers/ati-drivers-10-4) did the job.

I don't use ATI but I think I read here a while back that ATI drivers
have to be compatible with certain versions of xorg. You may want to
see if you can use a newer version of the ATI drivers.

You can look at the ebuild to see what exact versions. From what i
read, it looks like you may need the 10 series instead of the 9 series.
Then again, it is sometimes backwards from what I am thinking. May be
worth testing anyway.

Glad to have helped. Sort of surprised since I don't know anything
about ATI cards. o_O
