D5100, any experience with overheat?

Before I settle on the D5100 for my first DSLR, I want to make sure that it can handle long exposures in low light as I'll be shooting quite a lot of that.
1) Does D5100 have a Bulb mode? I've been told that most DSLRs do but it's never mentioned on the product page so I want to make sure.
Yup, it has a Bulb mode. You just need to turn the dial past the 30s mark. It will show as B.
2) Have you ever had any problems with it overheating during a long exposure? If so how long did it take to overheat, and are there any tips to help avoid it?
I've shot video full quality, a few clips in sequence, for about an hour, with no overheating issues. I live in Brazil, so the ambient temperature here is usually fairly high to begin with. I don't think you'll have any issues with long exposures.
