I've had the same problem and after searching Debian bugtracking
database it seems that there is a bug in 4.1.0 they forwarded upstream.
What I did was to downgrade xfree86-common and xserver-xfree86 to 4.0.3
leaving all the rest of xfree stuff at 4.1.0. I put those two packages
on hold and so far everything runs smoothly. I think this is the fastest
fix until they fix the 4.1.0 chips module.
