I have done quite a lot of research on the thermal shutdown problem. This
is very typical for this bug: sometimes it does not happen for a long time
with many tests in a row, making it very difficult to track down.

I have found a change in ec.c to be the cause. There is also a later change
in the same file, that cures the problem. It is not included in the stable
2.6.26 tree yet, but we are trying to get it accepted there.
