I have the same problem on the same hardware. Ubuntu 5.10, kernel version

It seems that on low cpu-load, the fan is regulated properly. If the cpu heating
occurs 'fast', e.g. when you run "glxgears", the cpu temperature rises with no
fan activity until I explicitly probe the temperature through "cat
/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ1/temperature" (or "acpi -V").

Could it be that hardware alerts at crossing trip-points are not passed to the
acpi-module at higher cpu-loads (too low priority or something like that)?
If I can assist in checking out this bug, please instruct me. I'd like to learn
more about system internals in this way.
