Subject: [gentoo-laptop] Problem with CPU temperature (Santa Rosa CPU)

Hi list,
   i have a Santa Rosa (Core 2 Duo T7300) Acer AS5720 laptop, and i'm
getting problems with the temperature of the CPU. In particular i'm
using the coretemp module for determining the core temperature.
Normally (using cpufreqd and the "ondemand" governor) the CPU stays at
nearly 50C  (which i think is quite high since in windows , using Core
Temp it gives about 30C).
While compiling this increases up to 95-100C (after which it shuts
down). The problem is that the fan is not spinning up at all!
What can be the cause of this behaviour? consider that i'm using an up
to date system with gentoo-sources-2.6.22-r8.

Any help appreciated,
Regards,
Marco
