The card is working perfectly with many other distributions (and even different OSs), including heavy 3D games, so it isn't an hardware problem, just a driver bug.
And I can't even get the fglrx driver shipped with Dapper to work, the system just locks up in a similar way (but I'm known to hate binary drivers anyway :)).
The RV280 is one of the better supported cards under Linux using only free drivers, it's a pity it doesn't work with Dapper just because of a patch altready accepted in mainline...
