Why does my chainsaw lose power and eventually die after it warms up? It runs great for quite a while when cold--enough to make several cuts.

It's a Craftsman 42 cc Model 358350480. I've replaced the plug, cleaned the air filter, and it has fresh fuel/oil mix. When first started (it starts great, no problems) it runs well, plenty of power. After it gets hot, it will suddenly lose power, then rpms, then eventually die. I can often get it to restart with the choke, but it has no power and dies again.
