Are you sure it is not a hardware problem?  I used to have problems with
my AMD cpu overheating during intensive tasks such as massive compiles.
This would trip the sensors that protect the CPU from melting and either
freeze the OS or reboot the machine.  Getting some silver conducting
paste from the local computer shop and resetting my heat sync fixed the
problem.
