I've just run yum update on my home machine, the one described above. It found 
a new fglrx module and replaced the one installed this morning. This has 
cured the above systems on first check. Was able to reboot and then shutdown 
normally without a lockup - this is just the first test, but it's looking 
good. There was a reference in one thread today to fglrx possibly being a 
problem. Thorsten had commented in a referenced thread that he was on the 
case, so, if this is the result, thanks!
