Black screen and crash on r600 with radeon module not loaded

If the radeon kernel module isn't loaded, starting Xorg gives me a black screen and I need to do a hard reboot (reset).
I've a HD4650 radeon, so it's r600 driver. This didn't happen with my old Radeon 9250, but I did upgrade X and kernel at the same time (to have r600 support), so not sure if it's related to hardware or to more recent X.
I'm using Debian GNU/Linux with 64-bits kernel and 32-bits userland and :
- xserver-xorg-video-radeon version 1:6.13.0-2
- xserver-xorg version 1:7.5+6
- libgl1-mesa-dri version 7.8.1-1
- kernel 2.6.33-2-amd64
