For what it is worth, search through the archives. You'll see this same
complaint a few times. The pink screen lock-up started with the 100.x
drivers (the 9755 drivers did not exhibit this problem), then went away
with 100.14.11, but came back again with 100.14.19 drivers (the 169.09
driver broke XvMC for me). I've stuck with the 100.14.11 drivers and
they have worked rather well without any pink screens.
