Possibly related to frequent freeze-ups during high GPU usage; possibly independent. The error reporter appeared after a forced reboot.

Bug Description

I have had frequent problems with graphics drivers in general and fglrx in particular. Lately, the system freezes (beyond even the mystic powers of the SysRq) after random lengths of time spent playing any graphics-heavy game (straight video seems to be alright, and sites like google maps). I can't say for sure that this report is related; it appeared after I was forced to do a hard reboot. But it's the first hard evidence the machine has barfed up this week, as I've inexpertly trawled the logs, so this report is a bit of a hail mary.
