I get the same problem. It happened much more frequently with 3.1 but still quite common with 3.2.
I get this crashed boot screen about 1 in 10 boots, where the colours on the screen all kind of cross fade with each other and a 5cm horizontal grey bar appears at the top of the screen.
I've been playing with Linux on the same machine and this same graphics corruption happens when Xorg starts about 50% of the time too.
The interesting thing however is that when this happens with MorphOS the machine hangs and doesn't complete the boot process but on Linux the corruptions is visible for about 10 seconds and then it vanishes and the desktop is displayed as normal.
Just thought I'd update this thread incase Frank or Mark read it and could maybe look at the Xorg radeon driver for some clues to fix this on MorphOS?
