X/kernel compatibiity?

My amd64 system is basically running stable, including X, but I'm
running linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 and associated firmware for reasons
unrelated to X.

After a recent upgrade, my monitor started behaving poorly (shrunk
vertically and flickering), and I'm wondering if this could be from an X
vs kernel mismatch.

Does anybody know if that's possible and what I could do to fix or test
this?  It doesn't look as if pulling my video driver,
xserver-xorg-video-radeon is a good idea since it will pull in the whole
testing X.  I could rebuild the stable version from source.
