Comment 14 for bug 563156

Update - I have upgraded to 2.6.32-21 and the laptop was still running hot by the time it booted up. However I noticed under 'Hardware Drivers' that fglrx has now been made available. I have installed it and the results are significantly better. The only disadvantage is that Plymouth runs in 800 x 600 instead of my native 1366 x 768 but I'll live with that and at least my 6 year-old wont suffer burns to her lap now.
