    Is this something I should be worrying about?

    Are you overclocked? If you are, throttle back down to 550 mhz (stock). You don't need the extra clock cycles for navigation.

    No, everything is stock.

    I've heard of Droids not charging when it got too hot, but other than that, nothing function-wise. Perhaps you can rig up some sort of shade for the dock, so the Droid isn't exposed to direct sun?
