[RC5] CPU temp

The reason dnetc heats your CPU more or crashes your fanless 486 is that
it more completely uses the power of your CPU.  SETI at home is not known for
being highly optimized or efficient, so there's less strain on the CPU.
dnetc is hand-tuned assembler code, which keeps your CPU busy and working
hard all the time.

i did accidently run a 486dx2-66 w/o a cpu cooling fan.
dnet stopped working (=pc crashed) after 1h. seti ran w/o problems (=pc
didn't crash, the WU would have taken around 200h to complete w/ 3.0
cmdline client).
