Actually, I did. Here is my device setup:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Card 1"
    Driver      "r128"
    VideoRam    8192
    BusID    "PCI:0:16:0"
    Option    "UseFBDev" "true"
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

lspci will show that

00:10.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Mobility M3 AGP 2x (rev 02)

So this should work but it doesn't.

My next step if I can't find the problem with 4.0.3 is to go to 4.1 (I
believe that sid includes xfree86 4.1.x) but I'd rather have it working now
the way it is.

If someone has any suggestion, I really appreciate.
