I've had similar problems on 7-11 which at least gave me partial graphic activity before it hung. For me it was 256MB aperture or higher that was needed to get the graphics before the hang (including the rotating mouse cursor and all),
at 128MB or below the system would hang with a black screen like it does for me all the time with the 8-3 Catalyst.
I've tried almost all Aperture options with all Catalyst fglrx-en since 7-10 (equivalent) until I gave up at 8-2.
Now I'll await the official "AGP works now" declaration by the AMD/ATI developers before frustrating myself further
-edit- Thanks for the xorg.conf, vitalyb.
There's some stuff in there that I didn't know was possible to do.
What made you add the following bit?:
Option "omit XFree86-DGA"
