Assuming that you have AIGLX enabled in your xorg.conf, did you reboot before 
launching X with beryl?

If not, try after a reboot and see if you still get a white screen on the 
first try as there seems to be a few more bugs in the ATI code with xserver 

If that doesn't do it, then it's probably a bug that got fixed by my using the 
the development branch of 1) the ati driver, 2) drm driver, 3) xserver.  My 
ati and drm drivers have some custom patches as well.

Here the path I'm going to recommend if your willing:

1) Upgrade your ati driver to 6.6.192 then consider patching to match the 
development branch.  I can send you my patches which also has a patch to the 
RADEONRestoreAccelState function which may be required for stability.

2) Update the drm driver to match the development branch.  I can send you my 
port which also has patches required to prevent kernel hangs.

3) Update the xserver to the development branch and mesa 7.0.  Also requires 
updating the keyboard and mouse drivers as well as the pixman port.  I can 
send these to you as well.
