I'm also affected by this bug. 

This is my original bug report downstream:


Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-ati

When I'm doing a demanding CPU activity (ripping a CD, doing OCR, etc), the
computer shuts itself down due to overheating (more than 99 C).

I've tried running sudo sensors-detect but no modules were loaded.

I've also tried booting with option "acpi.power_nocheck", but to no use.

I've also tried adding options radeon modeset=1 to

Lastly, I updated my BIOS from the vendor's webpage, but it didn't help either.

This only happens while I'm on the open-source ATI drivers. When I tried the
proprietary fglrx drivers, I wasn't able to reproduce it.
