xserver -xorg-video-ati 1:6.6.3-2 is very old, lots of changes were made
since then, but no new stable version has been released. So there are 2
major release candidates that you could try:

* 1:6.6.193-1 is the natural successor of 1:6.6.3-2 with several fixes,
it is available from http://people.debian.org/~bgoglin/ati-for-sid/

* Then the driver got a large rework, especially in the area regarding
monitor/mode detection, with randr-1.2 support. So 1:6.7.192-1 is
available for unstable from
http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2007/08/05/debian/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-video-ati/

Please try with any of these versions.
