Sunpak flash and AC adapter heat

When using one of the big Sunpak flashes (544, 522, etc.) with an AC adapter, does the base of the flash (the part with the thyristor) get hot? I just got an AC adapter for a 511 that I'm using on a 544. After using it for a while, the base was hot enough for me to be concerned and I turned it off.
