Sid, xorg and fglrx

I'm another who has problems with the latest upgrade in sid's xorg.

My video is ATI Radeon X1600, which requires the proprietary fglrx driver. This has been running well on my HP NX8420 giving me the full 1680*1050 resolution. The problem now as reported in Xorg.0.log:

(II) Module fglrx: vendor="FireGL - ATI Technologies Inc."
   compiled for 7.1.0, module version = 8.28.8
   Module class: X.Org Video Driver
   ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 1.0
[R200Setup] X version mismatch - detected X.org, required X.org

I upgraded from a 2.6.18 kernel to 2.6.20 but module-assistant can't even compile the module. It compiles OK on 2.6.18, but trying to load it gives the error above. I was interested to note that Xorg.0.log reports the version as, matching the error above.

I'm thoroughly confused as I thought sid was up to xorg 7.2 but my installation gives:

ii xorg 7.2-3 X.Org X Window System ii xorg-docs 1.2+git20061105-3 Miscellaneous documentation for the X.Org so ii xserver-xorg 7.2-3 the X.Org X server ii xserver-xorg-core X.Org X server -- core server ii xserver-xorg-input-evdev 1.1.5-2 X.Org X server -- evdev input driver ii xserver-xorg-input-joystick 1.2.1-2 X.Org X server -- joystick input driver ii xserver-xorg-input-kbd 1.1.0-4 X.Org X server -- keyboard input driver ii xserver-xorg-input-mouse 1.1.1-3 X.Org X server -- mouse input driver ii xserver-xorg-input-synaptics 0.14.6-1 Synaptics TouchPad driver for X.Org/XFree86 ii xserver-xorg-video-ati 6.6.3-2 X.Org X server -- ATI display driver ii xserver-xorg-video-v4l 0.1.1-3 X.Org X server -- Video 4 Linux display driv ii xserver-xorg-video-vesa 1.3.0-1 X.Org X server -- VESA display driver ii xserver-xorg-video-vga 4.1.0-3 X.Org X server -- VGA display driver ii xserver-xorg-video-vmware 10.13.0-3 X.Org X server -- VMware display driver

The only thing that seems to work is the vesa driver at 1024*768.

I'd be grateful for any pointers on how to fix this. Should I file a bug?
