I still think it would be worth uninstalling fglrx to see if it fixes
it, it is a remarkable coincidence to get such an odd symptom.  When I
uninstalled it  (for a different problem) it automatically fell back
to the free driver and I don't notice any difference in performance
(though I am not running graphics intensive games or similar).  You
can always re-install it again.
