Martox G550, stopped working in 7.1.

startx fires up the KDE, and in about a minute after the session restoration 
(konsole, amarok, konqueror and open office are loaded) the X goes down 
without restoring the console video mode. I can start another one from remote 
terminal, but it doesn't help much since the same thing happens to it 
eventially. I'm using VESA driver now too; I'll see if the fbdev driver works 
better (should it?).

I wish I could find those radeon 9200 in computer shops now... A little bit of 
offtopic: will "9200 SE" do OK, or is this chip a complete crap?
