          Confirming this. 11.8 fixes the problem for me on Gentoo x86_64 (kernel 3.0.1-gentoo).

            The bug affects me only when I connect only one display to the card to the DVI connector /only the monitor - a Philips LCD/. When I connect a second display to the hdmi connector /a LG LCD TV/, the bug does not affect me on my primary display. /clone or multiple displays - it doesn't matter/

              Code:
              sudo service gdm stop
              Replace gdm with the appropriate session manager (kdm, lxdm...) if needed.

              Summing up so far:
              It seems to affect desktop cards based on the HD5000 and HD6000 series, on distributions shipping kernel 2.6.38 and later, with fglrx version 11.5+

              More input appreciated!
              Thank you! I stopped gdm, installed the 11.8 driver, restarted, and everything is fine. Sweet!

              My hat is off to anyone who contributed to fixing the problem, either by information gathering or helping to write the fix. Thanks!
