Ok, looks like your video-driver was using up too much resources.
Either with all the desktop-effects or with something else.

I can't help further with ATI-issues as I don't use them myself.

I do know that I need to change more then just the driver in my xorg.conf when 
using nvidie-drivers. Am wondering if your crashes occured because of a 
similar issue.
Eg. the "dri" module is only for the ATI-driver and not for the open-source 
one?
