You've got an AGP model- they've got a PCI-E one.

Actually, it may be more something to do with AGP than Ubuntu... I'm seeing a trend with THAT detail to be truthful- and ATI's had...issues...with AGP bridged PCI-E based GPUs with earlier versions of fglrx.

And the best part is in the 8.42.3 release notes :
Segmentation faults in OpenGL applications and the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center Linux Edition with Rialto-based AGP cards no longer occur.
I don't know really what else is there to tell , but if the ATI beta testers use only PCI-E cards , like Phonorix do , there will be no fix beacause this sort of problems will never be reported back to ATI.
