Catalyst/fglrx trouble in Debian (and not just in Fedora)

My AMD Catalyst (aka fglrx) trouble in Fedora is well-documented. Biggest of the big at this point is that the proprietary AMD driver DOES NOT work with GNOME 3. So I did a test install of Debian Jessie last week, and the same thing happened: GNOME 3 runs fine with the open-source Radeon driver, not at all with the closed-source fglrx.
