I can't really speak for AMD/ATI, but I ran the NVidia binary driver
from their website for a while in combination with Debian Testing.
In my experience, the driver had to be reinstalled every time the x
packages were upgraded, not just X versions, but packaging changes as
well. That was really unpleasant as it occurs quite often.
Not downloading a new driver, just reinstalling the one you already had.

Luckily, I can now use the Debian packages for the binary driver and
nouveau is also good enough if I don't run 3D heavy applications.

So maybe just try to reinstall the AMD driver?
