i've had multiple issues with clutter and my intel card (open drivers)
when writing the libchamplain widget integration which also uses clutter
(see http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/2875 ) What helped in my case was
setting the env. var. CLUTTER_VBLANK=none
maybe this also helps with the radeon.
if unity bugs too much, try gnome 3 ;)
