What i did was i used the original xorg.conf that worked fine before installing fglrx. Under the "Device" section i just changed Driver "radeon" to "fglrx" and it worked fine. I didn't run fglrxconfig at all. You might want to try that. If you use xorg 6.8 you also need to add

Option "no_dri" "yes"

Btw, i did run into the problem you're facing several times after trying out fglrxconfig.

Good luck.
