do any other modes work?  720x480, 1280x768, 1366x768?  Does switching
VTs help in this case as well?

Weird.  Can you dump the regs before and after switching the VT using
radeontool (http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=users/airlied/radeontool.git;a=summary)?

(as root)
./radeontool regmatch '*' > before.regs
switch VT
(as root) ./radeontool regmatch '*' > after.regs
