[ubuntu netbook remix] Fan not working right after upgrade to 9.10

http://ubuntuforums.org – I just upgraded from 9.04 (where my fan never seemed to run) to 9.10 NBR on my Asus Eee 1005-HA. Now it seems that my fan only turns on or off when the laptop is restarted. Earlier I was working on the laptop and it was fairly hot. I restarted (for an unrelated reason) and the fan came on. It stayed on for an excessive amount of time, until I restarted. Then a while later I was working and the laptop was extremely hot, but the fan never turned on. Suddenly the the laptop just shut off for no reason (or because it was too hot?). When I turned it back on, the fan came on instantly - and has remained on again for an extremely long time even though the laptop is cool again. (Hardware)
