Yes, I'm sure.  When I shutdown I checked BIOS before rebooting.  By
that time the cpu temperature had dropped to 59 C. (The alarm is set for
60 C.) and both the cpu fan and the case fan were running normally.  I
watched until the cpu temperature was down to 55 C before rebooting.

Note that this problem has never occurred before and only recurred when
I restarted the wine application.
