I think you know the problem, it sounds exactly like heat.  the RC5
client will load it all the way.  Here's some ideas:

*Open up the case and aim a fan into it.  See if that fixes the

*Underclock your CPU and see if it happens.

*Run Quake for 3 hours straight.  It'll do the same thing as far as CPU
load, but if it's a specific instruction that's locking it, it might
not call it.  So after Quake's been running for 3 hours, start the RC5
client and see how long it takes to lock it up.  I'll bet it will
happen quickly.
