If X applications are not able to handle data properly on crash,
that's an application problem.
See vi or similar that stores always data on temporary files
while working and offer the option to the user to recover.
This makes the severity important and not grave.
Also reassigning to the proper package.

Is there any specific reason for using r128 instead of ati?
Is this problem reproducible constantly? If so please install the debugging version of the server
and provide us a gdb back trace.
