here is my xorg.conf. I removed the font paths and "Input Devices",
makes it a bit more readable. Significantly different are the options in
your xorg.conf that go along with the "Device":
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
I assume this controls the graphics driver "fglrx"?
Also, I am not using the:
Option "Composite" "Disable"
Option "AIGLX" "off"
my xorg.conf (clipped)
Identifier "S3 Inc. SuperSavage IX/C SDR"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"

InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
# InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
# InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
# InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
# InputDevice "Synaptics Touchpad"
