are you sure, you have these artefactes under X11 with "ati" driver too?
If yes,  it has nothing todo with "fbdev". "ati" chahges all chip settings on 
it own. Anyway "ati" was for me any time "refrence number one", and if they 
do not have solution, I don't have it for sure ;-(

What about ask maintainer of "ati"?

I think these red dots caused by overclocking something(dotclock, memory,
