Freeze happens sometimes when playing video (but it's not necessary), generally once every day, I never got past 2-3 days, very unpredictable. Does not happen with fglrx driver, does not happen on windows.
Screen freezes, nothing works, not even the mouse as some other bugs have reported. If audio was playing, it gets stuck in a last second or so loop. I need to fully unplug the system to get it to even restart, power/reset buttons also don't work.
It didn't happen 3 or so years ago (it's an old card). I got hit by this but in Ubuntu, Gentoo and Arch, distribution doesn't seem to matter. I tried using a low power profile, didn't do anything.
I'm reporting this since distributions are moving away from fglrx I would need to replace the card if I can't get it to work, it didn't really bother me while the proprietary driver was still working.
I'm willing to try out patches, recompile kernels/mesa/whatever if I can get this to work. Any logs you need, if there's some "enable debug output" or anything.

So, it used to work years ago... hmm, I know it's a long shot: can you bisect the kernel?
If I could find a way to reproduce the problem fast, without waiting 1-3 days for each test it would be a lot easier. I'll start looking for a piece of software that reliably causes the freeze in a short period of time.
Fingers crossed. There will be many revisions to test (apparently), so thanks in advance for your effort.
