D4 Shutdowns due to high temps?

Anyone else experienced their D4 (or D800 for that matter) shutting itself off due to overheating?

2 weekends in a row now out in 90+ degree weather my D4 has decided it is too hot.
Last weekend it had already shut itself off before I could check it.

Today, as I returned to check on it, it was counting down before shutting itself off with what looked like an image of a thermometer being displayed on the live view screen.

It had been recording video for just over 4 minutes, and the lens was not facing the sun.

Couldn't find anything in the user manual about this.
