Well, personally, I wouldn't do that. After all, the "correct" and 
documented option, Ignore, is still broken. I'd say that if you want to 
report it upstream, then mark the bug as forwarded; if it's a bug in the 
X server itself, reassign it. (Or maybe even leave the bug open and 
assigned to xserver-xorg-video-ati, so that others who might scratch 
their heads over the same problem might find this bug report, and 
discover this workaround.)

But it's up to you, I suppose. (My packages have way too many open bugs, 
so maybe my way has its drawbacks too...)
