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.
