That's interesting... my problem started when the weather got warmer
here (New England).

I solved the fan noise problem a few years ago by taking the lid off 
my netwinder and mounting it in a PC case, set on its side.  There's 
no active air circulation around it.

I'll try stuffing a fan in there, maybe even a heatsink on the
tulip chip.
