I have same problem ever since upgrading to 1:6.6.3-2.
The 1:6.6.3-1 works fine for me. So does the 1:6.6.2-2
This is on IBM ThinkPad R32.

When the system freezes, I can still ssh to it and run commands
(albeit it is very slow). Xorg runs with almost 100% CPU.

My hardware should be rock solid.

If there's anything I can do to help debugging this, please
let me know. Here's the device section of my xorg.conf

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility M6 LY"
        Driver          "ati"
        BusID           "PCI:1:0:0"
        Option          "UseFBDev"              "true"

Let me know if you want the whole file and/or logs during failure.

And the related packages:
ii  libc6                      2.3.6.ds1-7   GNU C Library: Shared libraries
ii  xserver-xorg               7.1.0-5       the X.Org X server
