--- Comment #26 from aleritty <aleritty at gmail.com> ---
I can confirm this bug also on my card:
Ati Mobility radeon HD 4500, RV710

I always had overheating problems with the opensource driver, so I used the
binary driver from ATI.

Actually with the latest updates the ati-closed-driver doesn't work anymore
also on ubuntu 12.04

So the only solution is to install the old LTS from Ubuntu or debian stable.

I can provide additional information about my hardware and my issue.

This bug was around from a lot of time right now and is potentially harmful
about the hardware.

Can be possible to correct the bug (at least initially) forcing the driver to
"low" profile? it will be less responsive but at least it will be safe to use.
