Not that I've heard of. Best would be to ask about this on XFree mailing list 
(XFree86 at XFree86.Org). A log from server would be nice to have. If the one 
from lockup got overwritten by subsequent launch of X, you migt 
check /var/log/XFree86.0.log.old.
Ati driver was quite a bit rewritten though in CVS, so it would be possible 
that such problem was solved by this. If you feel like experimenting I can 
make ports of last development snapshot.
