There is a way to run an emergency downgrading by changing packages
priorities but it is not recommended.

This seems the best way to resolve your problem.

Thanks for your answer,

I was able to downgrade doing the following

aptitude install xserver-common=2:1.7.7-14 xserver-xephyr=2:1.7.7-14 xserver-xorg-core=2:1.7.7-14

But this didn't work. Probably something else is broken. I could remove the xserver and install it again with the ATI drivers. But I might directly wipe the installation and install wheezy. Luckily I separated the /home and / partitions :)
