That is very similar to my problem: both Flash and Java apps caused exponential CPU usage. Shutting down everything would cause the machine to settle down but it wouldn't become stable until a full reboot. I would suggest checking to see if there's a BIOS update for the machine as I've just done that and it's seemed to resolve the heating issues that I had that apparently came from the Nvidia GPU. Also you don't mention the version and architecture of Ubuntu that you're using which might be useful to know.
I managed to update the bios last night. I've done a couple of tests after that and so far it looks good. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Thanks to everyone who responded!
