Just to reconfirm: It fails reproduceably with your `xorg.conf' here.
The symptoms are the same as reported before, notably the apparent file
system breakage after X failed and exited.

Maybe some kernel/XSF folks could share with us their opinion on this?
This would be nice since I have no idea how to proceed to provide more
useful reports now.

Also, is the ATI driver known to work on other platforms?
