I think it is this change:

         DefaultDepth     24
+       SubSection "Display"
+               Viewport   0 0
+               Depth     24
+       EndSubSection

DefaultDepth already has to be defined in every fglrx release, without 
it, X wont start.
Could someone verify it with his old configuration and just adding the 
subsection, that it is working then?

Another possible change would be:
+       Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0

Or yes the dpms thing, if AMD changed the DPMS handling:
+       Option      "DPMS" "true"

Always if we think we are right,
we were maybe wrong.
