Hi Patrick,

I commented out the line:

Option "Textured2D" "True"

in the "Device" section of my xorg.conf, rebooted and it works!!! Xorg 
does not crash! So it looks like my Mobility X1400 is much happier with 
those settings and the 1:9-1-1 driver. I tested out Compiz Fusion (which 
is really the only graphics intensive thing I use on my laptop) and it 
works as well as fglrx + AIGLX ever has. :P

I appreciate your assistance on this one and am glad that my card is 
again working with fglrx, albeit without "Textured 2D". :) Things look 
the same to me though, does "Textured 2D" only come into play with games 
or something?

Anyway thanks again.
