I had the same kind of problems on one of my MacBook Pro (i7 2.66 Ghz 4Go RAM OS X 10.6.8) while it never occured on the second one (i5 2.4 Ghz 4 Go RAM OS X 10.7.4).

The sole solution i found to stop having its fan running > 5500 RPM all over the day, even when the processor was in idle state + avoid random weekly crash panics went to connect and use a 3.5 external hard drive to the laptop and make it the default boot drive. Since this change, the processor temp is back to 47* Celsius with fans at 2000 RPM in idle state and mostly under 65° Celsius / < 4500 with about 10 dev and control apps running in the background (LC, iOS simulator, Chrome, CyberDuck, Graphic Converter, etc...).

The other way to go should be to send the machine to Applecare and brought a new one in between...
