Description of problem:

There is a serious problem with proprietary driver (fglrx) on the Sony
SVE1713S1RW notebook with AMD Radeon HD 7650M "Thames" graphics card.

I can't type simple text in the terminal. If I type several keys, then only
some of typed symbols will be displayed and I can't see the whole command. The
first impression was like some keys on the keyboard don't work, but if I type
Up/Down keys then the typed text will be displayed.

Current version of the fglrx driver is 14.301.1001-4.

Boot mode: UEFI.

HW probe: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=4d059c654c

The problem persists with kernel 3.18.9:

and with fglrx 14.501.1003-2: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=34b852875a

All is Ok with the free graphics driver (with kernel 3.18.9):

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R5 KDE x86_64

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Radeon non-free driver (fglrx) via XFdrake
2. Open terminal
3. Try to type any text
