The described behaviour can only happen if the radeon driver isn't
actually used, but instead a generic driver such as vesa. The Xorg log
file and dmesg output will be necessary to determine if that is due to a
configuration error or bug in another package, but it's most definitely
not an xserver-xorg-video-radeon bug.
