You sure we're talking about the same app? Watchdog doesn't auto kill apps, and I don't think there's even an option in there to do that. Watchdog will only alert you if an app is eating too much of your phones cpu... which theoretically should allow you to force close an app before it gets to the point of where it would hang or reset your phone. Once that cpu starts getting eaten up like that by an app, the phone's gonna get hot.

Edit: Also keep in mind that if an app repeatedly eats that much of your phones cpu (GrooveIP for example), this is something that should be reported to the misbehaving apps developer. They can't fix it unless you report it.
