I don't think that this is related to the two Xorg processes. I see the
same warning with my Intel Q965 graphics card, simply because it shows
up under two bus addresses in lspci, but I don't have two Xorg processes

Maybe the full Xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) has more clues.

Maybe the fglrx driver is to blame; did you already check if you still
see two Xorg processes with the basic "vesa" driver enabled instead?
