I have such problem too but, but Unity works fine... Radeon HD5770 - ubuntu 11.10 with proprietary drivers - screenshot – user26930 Oct 13 '11 at 21:13
I have ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Graphics, and when I use gnome-shell, the top bar is bright blue and only half the letters render, the others are torn or blank boxes. Using proprietary drivers. Gnome 3 worked when I used it on Fedora though. Unfortunately I can't provide a screenshot, as when I make a screenshot, only my wallpaper shows, it must be part of the bug. – user26937 Oct 13 '11 at 21:29

I had the same issue with my ati card (switched to nvidia now) but I didn't have atis newest driver back then...have you tried to go to the ati page and download the newest linux drivers? It's the amd catalyst 11.10 drivers released october 31
