Thank you!  Your code works fine for me now.  I briefly tried tuning the
parameters, but couldn't get it to run faster than ~4150 c/s.  So I

XAUTHORITY=~user/.Xauthority DISPLAY=:0 aticonfig --od-enable --od-setclocks=1250,1375

This brought the speed to:

Benchmarking: OpenBSD Blowfish OpenCL [BF_OPENCL]... DONE
Raw:    5556 c/s real, 238933 c/s virtual

which is about the same as the CPU - meaning we can double the speed by
using both the CPU and the GPU at once (two instances of John).

The card stays cool (71 C) since we're under-utilizing the GPU anyway.
...Oh, I got "ASIC hang" after:

guesses: 345  time: 0:00:03:28 0.00%  c/s: 5449  trying: 123456 - random

Whatever.  I'll bring it back to stock clocks (925 MHz core).

BTW, 1300 MHz resulted in John's self-test failure, and 1250 MHz worked
for 3.5 minutes as you can see.  I don't know if the "ASIC hang" was
related to the overclock or not.
