I also see font rendering artifacts, mostly in Firefox, but in other 
apps as well.  I blame the video driver, possibly the EXA acceleration, 
though I haven't tried XAA yet (per `man radeon`).  I have an old ATI 
Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE] rev 0.  It could be that your lockups 
have the same cause.
