BUG?: CAL+OpenCL find only 1 GPU with fglrx-8.67 for OpenCL GPU

All other things equal, and using my tried and tested installation procedure for installing the catalyst driver (fglrx-8.67) shipped with the latest OpenCL GPU support, CAL and OpenCL detect only 1 GPU of 4:

OpenCL:

emuller@guava:~$ ipython
IPython 0.9.1 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
In [1]: import pyopencl as cl
In [2]: ctx = cl.Context(dev_type=cl.device_type.GPU)
For test only: Expires on Sun Feb 28 00:00:00 2010
In [3]: ctx.devices
Out[3]: [<pyopencl.Device 'ATI RV770' at 0x1ac9446>]

CAL:

emuller@guava:~$ ./caltest
CAL Runtime version 1.4.467

Device Type = GPU RV770

Kernel compile and link sucessful.
Device sucessfully closed.

However, amdcccle reveals all 4 screens are detected and enabled, so everything looks fine here.  It is perhaps a CAL bug.

 

On another system with the older driver and CAL Runtime everything is fine

emuller@coconut:~$ ./caltest
CAL Runtime version 1.4.344

The system is Ubuntu 9.04, 64bit, 2x 4850x2
