I have one too and Quake3 causes a panic when a level is loaded since the
upgrade to Xorg 7.2. My radeon mobility 7500 doesn't have this problem, however
there are many visual problems (flickering textures) since the upgrade. And on
both xrandr is unable to detect the available resolutions, which is
inconvenient, because I use it in many scripts and it is used by wine and
prevents the starting of Diablo 2.
Anyway, what I want to say is that Radeon support has clearly suffered.
