Hmmm, never had that happen before - all my power/cooling problems seem to
just cause hard lockups.  I've pulled the speed limiter off my CPU fan, so
the machine is annoyingly loud but 5-10C cooler.  Will try that OO compile
again and see how things go.  I should probably also apply some canned air
to the 2.5 years of accumulated dust on the fans & heatsinks.  Gross.
