Forwarding this bug report from a Ubuntu reporter:

Black screen when switching to lower resolutions.  Works ok on terminal screens
or with vesa driver.

[Original Report]
Since the upgrade to Ubuntu 8.10, I can no longer switch to lower resolutions
than 1400x1050 on my Dell Latitude D600 laptop when using the Open Source ATI
Radeon driver in X. When switching to a lower resolution the screen goes black.

Lower resolutions work without problems on the terminal screens (CTRL+F1 to
CTRL+F6), they also work without problems in X when using the vesa driver.

I tried adding the Option "NoDCC" to xorg.conf, but Xorg.0.log showed that this
option was ignored. Adding the Option "IgnoreEDID" also didn't make a
difference, but I'm also not sure if it was actually used.

Attached is my current xorg.log.
