9.04 is definitely running a lot hotter here. I have also noticed that
kwin sometimes "runs away"; sits at 50%+ cpu, which causes things to run
very hot. I've no idea what is setting this off, but now that I'm aware
of it, I've started watching.
I'd try running without compositing: System Settings/Desktop/Enable
desktop effects -> unchecked.
Xref this bug, I'm pretty sure that there are a few xorg + video driver
bugs lurking - there are large regressions in 9.04:
Also, it's worth installing and running htop in preference to top, it
provides a lot of useful info in an easily accessible way.
