Hmmm... It sounds like your issue is unrelated to mine.

Thanks to the info provided by Stefano, I think I may have narrowed my
issue down to a bug in xserver-xorg-video-ati from a commit that was
done on the 10th of April.

The bug is still unresolved but the workaround in the mean time is to
use the fglrx propriety drivers, which I have been running for a few
hours now without any crashes.

In case anyone else is interested the bug that I 'think' relates to my
issue is posted here:-


Thanks to all that helped!!
