looks like it's hitting an infinite loop in the server, probably because you
have more than one 1600x1200 mode for that output.  try adding a unique
modeline to your monitor section and specifying that instead.
Modeline "1600x1200_75.00"  204.75  1600 1720 1888 2176  1200 1203 1207 1255
-hsync +vsync
Option "PreferredMode" "1600x1200_75.00"

the modes listed in the screen section are irrelevant for randr 1.2 drivers. 
The default mode is based on the preferred mode in your monitor's edid unless
you override it.
The driver is coming up in 1024x768 according to your log:
(II) RADEON(0): Output VGA-0 using initial mode 1024x768
this makes sense as this is the first detailed timing block from your edid:
(II) RADEON(0): Supported additional Video Mode:
(II) RADEON(0): clock: 94.5 MHz   Image Size:  306 x 230 mm
(II) RADEON(0): h_active: 1024  h_sync: 1072  h_sync_end 1168 h_blank_end 1376
h_border: 0
(II) RADEON(0): v_active: 768  v_sync: 769  v_sync_end 772 v_blanking: 808
v_border: 0
