This is because gdm3 uses a non-default X11 authentication cookie. I use
something like

XAUTHORITY=/run/gdm3/$(sudo ls /run/gdm3|grep $(whoami))/database DISPLAY=:0

to work around it.

Do they work with the environment variable vblank_mode=0? If yes, does the
number for radeon increase in /proc/interrupts once the problem occurs?
