Sorry, it  would probably have been  clearer if I  had said "identify"
instead  of "detect".  With  Xorg 7.2,  "Xorg -configure"  generates a
configuration file containing this:

    Section "Device"
	    Driver      "ati"
	    VendorName  "ATI Technologies Inc"
	    BoardName   "RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO]"
	    BusID       "PCI:1:6:0"

With Xorg 7.4 I get this:

    Section "Device"
	    Driver      "radeon"
	    VendorName  "Unknown Vendor"
	    BoardName   "Unknown Board"
	    BusID       "PCI:1:6:0"

So 7.2  identifies my card  but 7.4 does  not.  It doesn't seem  to be
causing any problems but maybe it's worth noting anyway?
