I'll try upgrading to 14.04 and see what happens too

I think I'm coming to the end of my patience with Ubuntu -

Good, I hope MANY people loose patience with Ubuntu.  Ubuntu has done
more damage to the idea of an Open desktop than all the Internet trolls

My experience is thus:
Turn on computer
Login with GDM
Close about 8 "a system problem occurred" dialogues (not sure if that
is the actual text).

And *THIS* does not bother you?  I see ZERO "a system problem occurred"
dialogs.  Perhaps you could address the problem these are reporting?
Seeing errors upon login is already a rather bad sign.

Now, from there - gnome shell is good, I like it (I don't mind other
people can't use my computer (they're learning though).
Then, often I try and play an FLV video (in a player/browser/doesn't
matter) - after about 2 minutes it will do the freezing thing, which I
can battle past and fix - funnily only for long videos, music is
usually OK.

There is something unique to your setup occurring here, I have watched
hours of video while running GNOME Shell.

When the computer wakes up from hibernate the fans sometimes go full
blast I have to turn off the computer unplug it and take the batteries
out, sometimes after that they are still FULL(!) - so I do it again
and it behaves.

Can you view the computer's reported temperatures?

I've been on gnome since before 1.0 and Ubuntu since Dapper, it is
such a pain I might just get a mac, which is a shame as really think
libre software is important and am adamantly cross platform in the
code I care about.

Your experience is not normal.
