The Debian fglrx maintainers are active and were very responsive when I
had trouble recently. They were also very nice when I determined that
the problem was with my window manager. I suggest you file a bug with
the details (including versions of kernel, Xorg, etc.).
Before you do, take a look at bug 548410 and see if that is similar to
your problem. If so, add your info to that bug.
