After thinking about your stability problems a bit more, xserver has recently
received a number of EXA improvements, R500 MESA/DRM support is fairly
recent, and the drivers are a moving target a well. Few (none?) of these
improvements are in the official FreeBSD src/ports trees.
I'll send you a xf86-video-radeonhd tarball that I just created and tested
with my HD 2660 PRO. It may help, but I suspect that other parts of the X
tree will need to be updated as well.
