Yes, radeonhd is back now but using it doesn't help. I tried various
options without improvement. I notice that DRI is enabled and I thought
that might be the problem, but for some reason it is impossible to turn
it off - Option "DRI" "false" does nothing. There are also some odd
keyboard effects now - I can no longer stop X with Ctrl-Alt-Del.
This is with an ATI Mobility X1400, incidentally.
