I suspect your problem is caused by your previous glrx driver
installation. It is known that ATI proprietary driver overwrite some Xorg
Try to follow this guide to remove all signs of glrx from your system and
then to reinstall Xorg driver:

The driver installed on your system is open source ATI Radeon driver. But
again see my advise above. You can find the reference to the problem in
this Debian guide too:
I'm quite positive that your problem is in not completely removed glrx
libs, since my system get frozen quite often exactly you describe it,
when using glrx. Since I removed it following the links above and
reinstalled Xorg driver my system stopped freezing.
Though I'm still fighting to make compiz working.
My card is Radeon HD 5500.
