Please don't only reply to me, if your initial question was towards
the list -- someone else may see something I'm missing.

You never answered my initial question.  Are the proper xorg drivers
for your graphics card installed?  I ask again, because I've seen
several situations where non-existent or incorrect graphics drivers
make X do bad/odd things when exiting -- I've experienced this
situation myself.

I know nothing about ATI, other than it doesn't play well with any of
the OSes I use, so I don't buy it.
