Description of problem:
After a yum upgrade with xorg-x11-drv-ati.x86_64 6.6.3-3.33.el5 X does not start and it does enough that virtual console switching also does not work.  Both are true from a runlevel 5 start or a runlevel 3 and then a startx.  Leaves system at a black screen with no response to input.

yum downgrade to version 6.6.3-3.32.el5 fixes the issue on a fully patched 5.7 box.

"ATI RV730XT [Radeon HD 4670]" (ChipID = 0x9490)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-ati.x86_64 6.6.3-3.33.el5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a box with a "ATI RV730XT [Radeon HD 4670]"
2. Install RHEL 5.7 with above r500 driver
3. Boot to runlevel  5
4. See black screen

Actual results:
Black Screen

Expected results:
X display

This is still an issue with a currently updated RHEL 5 box.
Any fix for this?  Any update on work?  Any more data wanted?
