Hm, I think I've tracked my problem down to the following: Doesn't matter
what kernel I use, just switching from X11 to console via F1 brings the
notebook down in a minute or so. One of the temperature sensors goes from
ca. 70 degC to over 110 degC and eventually the beast is shut down by the
BIOS... Switching back to X11 (while it's still running ;-) doesn't change
Graphic chip is (from scanpci):
 pci bus 0x0001 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x1002 device 0x3154
 ATI Technologies Inc M24 1T [FireGL M24 GL]
