Looks like it, yes.

Nothing in the logs, nothing over netconsole, just a hard hang.  Sometimes
very fast, sometimes it takes a whole 2 days.

It happens on all kernels (went back to 2.6.28), with or without KMS. 
Initially the hangs started to appear with a git snapshot of ati-drivers from
mid-april 2009 (UMS).
