	ATI + Linux = bad.  Their drivers still suck.  I'm curious if anyone 
reporting this is running nvidia.  Also - you do install the ATI drivers, 
right?  AFAIK, they "taint" the kernel the same way NVidia does - but you 
really need to run them if you want to get the value out of the card.  I 
honestly don't know for sure, but unless the vendor drivers support XGL 
directly, I'm guessing you're not running XGL.
