Fabian reported there:
  "I experienced a similar (the same?) issue and eventually got around
   it by upgrading to the latest libgl1-mesa-dri package from sid,
   8.0.2-2 at that time."

The Xorg.*.log from gdm3 are not helpful as there seems to be the
interesting part missing due to the frequent restarting.

Can you try kdm/xdm/... and see if the Xorg.*.log contains more
information after the error?

And be aware of
  #675940: fglrx crashs with Xserver 1.12 on 64bit architecture
Backports has an older X stack available.
