Breaks my ATI Technologies Inc RV380 [Radeon X600 (PCIE)] as well.

I have discovered that disabling DRI or acceleration makes it work
(though that's not really a solution).  But I guess it wouldn't be
an "upgrade" from the X.org Consortium without some arbitrary and
unnecessary regression. 

With Option "Log" "sync", the tail end of the X.org log looks like:
(II) RADEON(0): [dri] Visual configs initialized
(II) RADEON(0): RADEONRestoreMemMapRegisters() : 
(II) RADEON(0):   MC_FB_LOCATION   : 0xe7ffe000 0x1fff0000
(II) RADEON(0):   MC_AGP_LOCATION  : 0xffffffc0
(==) RADEON(0): Backing store disabled
(II) RADEON(0): [DRI] installation complete

This works for me as long as DynamicPM is left disabled.  Enabling
it also causes a hard lockup.
