It's a known bug in the 32-bit version of the driver only. The 64-bit version works fine. The ATI people mislabeled a license in the code, and their (ATI's) license nominally forbids changing it. Of course there are plenty of patches available, and I suspect that Distro's with lower standards than Debian's are circulating it in the patched version. Personally, I'm proud to stand behind Debian's stubbornness, and will not use ATI's drivers in my 32-bit systems until ATI fixes it.
