My two top guesses are:
1. Overfilled radiator - especially if filled when the water was cool. 
Water expands when it is heated. Plus the water would not circulate as well 
causing the quicker temperature rise.

2. Bad radiator cap - not holding pressure

I have my doubts about the cracked head theory so I hope that Bill didn't 
"freak out" on that one. I'd check the easy stuff first.
