Disabling compositing does not help, as I turn it off when using second monitor
for performance reasons. 

Before enabling Color Tiling I haven't encountered the problem. Now I have it
turned on again for performance reasons.

Please see the last attachments.

I will do so when I encounter the loop again. It is now not-so-predictable and
various applications can trigger it in non-deterministic way.

Also I have upgraded my ati drivers yesterday (to the git head version) and I
don't know yet if the problem persists.

Upgrading to 7.11 branch (from Debian experimental repository) did not help.
